Louisan learns his uncle was wounded in New Zealand mosque attacks

Horror and sorrow: U of T reacts to attack on Christchurch mosque

Brenton Tarrant, 28, from Australia, appeared in court in Christchurch charged with one count of murder, however New Zealand Police said further charges were expected to follow.

Wearing a white prison suit, Tarrant appeared handcuffed and barefoot.

Brenton Harrison Tarrant has not applied for bail or for the suppression of his name. Following the attack, New Zealand's national security level was changed from "low" to "high". Many, such as the alt-right, are hidden in plain sight, with their proponents given a platform on social media websites - including Facebook, on which one of the terrorists in New Zealand live-streamed his rampage - as well as mainstream Western news outlets. Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay on the floor, the video showed.

A man who stood outside a Manchester mosque after the shooting of 49 people at mosques in New Zealand said he wanted to "respond with friendship".

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush said additional charges are forthcoming.

Ardern said that investigators are working to determine whether two others who were taken into custody in relation to the massacre were directly involved.

Victims Discharged From Hospital A member of the AOS (Armed Offenders Squad) stands ready following a shooting at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, on March 15, 2019.

She did not offer too much detail, but said a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be looked at.

'We haven't seen these assault weapons used in Australia and New Zealand, ' Mr Barton told ABC News.

He sustained a head injury, which was not believed to be serious, and was kept in hospital for treatment, the police added.

Ardern said 39 survivors remained hospitalized Saturday with 11 critically wounded.

J&J found liable for California woman's talc-linked cancer
Amid the scrutiny, Reuters late a year ago published a report alleging that J&J knew about asbestos in its talc for decades. That hasn't stopped people around the country from filing lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson.

Funerals were planned on Saturday for some of the victims, several who were born overseas.

Since then, Christchurch's 400,000 residents have feared the elements more than people; an natural disaster in 2011 killed 185 and toppled many downtown buildings in what has been lovingly dubbed the "Garden City".

"We think also of our Cook Islands community in Christchurch and in New Zealand, with so many of our people who have made their homes there".

Although shops were shuttered and many chose to stay at home, Christchurch residents piled bouquets of flowers at a makeshift memorial near the Al Noor mosque, many accompanied with handwritten letters laden with sadness and disbelief. A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for the attack. "It will be hard to get past and I'm not sure how", Hindy said. "It's very grave, it's very serious", he told reporters.

Amid the tragedy and outpouring of grief, New Zealand's people have come together. One man tries to greet him calmly, calling out "Hello, brother".

In total, the mayor's office says there are roughly 800,000 Muslims living in New York City, and about 250 mosques throughout the five boroughs.

Political across Asia and the Middle East voiced concern over the targeting of Muslims.

A host of world leaders, including US President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May, expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks.

A suspect, described by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern as an "extremist, right-wing" terrorist, has been arrested and charged with murder. The inverse of this phenomenon is, of course, that it gives oxygen to the propaganda machine of radical fringe elements spreading hatred against the West and religious minorities in Muslim countries, thus perpetuating an unending cycle of hate.

Three Bangladeshis were among the dead and one was missing, the consulate said.
