Jacinda Ardern says suspect in Christchurch attack meant to continue attack

Muslim ummah cries for its martyrs in New Zealand

The suspect was remanded in custody without plea to the High Court in Christchurch on April 5.

The distraught man was spoken to by a crowd of people outside the police cordon before he crossed the street, his face full of dismay.

Pakistan's foreign ministry spokesman says three more Pakistanis have been identified among those killed in the attacks on two mosques in New Zealand.

Naeem Rashid from Pakistan was hailed a hero after video footage of the attack appeared to show him attempting to wrestle the gun from the terrorist before his death.

ReutersA New Zealand judge ordered that Tarrant's face be blurred to preserve fair trial rights. No images have emerged from there.

He was arrested 36 minutes after the first call to police, Ardern added.

Condemning the terror strike, Ardern had described it as a "terror attack" and said it "appears to have been well planned". Anyone can use a pistol if they are on the range of an incorporated pistol club that is recognised [sic] by the Commissioner of Police, and under the immediate supervision of a licence [sic] holder with a B endorsement.

Linda Armstrong, 65, who had sponsored a child from Bangladesh, died at Lynwood mosque as well.

Two other people have been apprehended and are being questioned about what role, if any, they had in the attacks.

"The magnitude of this is the thing that is the most significant issue for people".

He said up to 70 people were praying inside Linwood when gunshots were heard. One victim died in hospital.

The hospital also confirmed 39 people are still receiving treatment, with 11 of them in intensive care.

"Hi guys how are you".

Extending the government's all-out support to the aggrieved families, he wrote on the micro-blogging website: "We stand ready to extend all our support to the families of Pakistani victims of the terrorist attack in Christchurch". Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population.

"We understand these procedures take time". The Sydney Morning Herald reports Nabi had left Afghanistan decades earlier and settled in Australia with his family.

However, because none of the bodies have been returned to the victims' families because of the investigation, many having been unable to bury their dead within the 24 hours customary in Islam.

Ardern said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who allegedly used five weapons, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns, which had been modified.

New Zealand has in the past tried to tighten firearm laws, but a strong gun lobby and culture of hunting has stymied such efforts.

"The United States strongly condemns the attack in Christchurch". All the weapons were legally obtained.

He remains the only person charged directly over last Friday's shooting massacres.

"Unfortunately, we are all too familiar with the devastating effect a mass shooting has on a faith community", said Meryl Ainsman, chair of the board of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. But already, the stories of victims from across the Muslim world came into focus.

He said he survived by playing dead, but was desperate to know what happened to his friends who were there with him. He said the Muslim community and a Pakistani association in the city were assisting in arrangements.

"Across all religions, our houses of worship are a source of refuge, of prayer, and of love; to see such a heinous and hate-filled act occur in what should be places of peace is the darkest of evils".
