Grieving members of the public following a shooting at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, March 15, 2019. A raft of further charges are expected.

Self-professed fascist occasionally turned to look and smirked at media present in court during the brief hearing that was held behind closed doors for security reasons. He was ordered to return to court again April 5.

In the wake of New Zealand's worst mass shooting in history, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has promised to move quickly to strengthen national security through measures like working with Australia. Two other people were in custody but had not been charged and the third did not appear to be connected to the shootings. He said a number of home-made bombs were found attached to vehicles that police stopped.

She said questions must also be asked on how the 28-year-old Australian citizen was able to enter New Zealand.

Members of the Bangladesh cricket team, now on tour in New Zealand, said on social media that they had almost been caught up in the tragedy.

Police took three men and a woman into custody.

A Palestinian man who was in one of the mosques said he saw someone being shot. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called the shooting an "unprecendented attack of violence".

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", Ardern said earlier on Friday, noting that numerous victims could be migrants or refugees.

In tweets and a Facebook post late Thursday evening, Scheer condemned an attack on freedom and "peaceful worshippers" but did not make note of the fact the worshippers were Muslims. Several more people were killed in an attack on a second mosque in the city a short time later. "They are us." She said the attack reflected "extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand".

Currently, New Zealand restricts the purchase of "military-style semi-automatic weapons" to those 18 or older.

In spite of this, a cult of personality has grown around Kjellberg, as evidenced by the "subscribe to Pewdiepie" meme evoked by the gunman, in which fans encourage people to subscribe to Kjellberg's channel so that he remains the most-followed person on YouTube.

He had livestreamed the shooting on Facebook.
