New Zealand attacks revive 'painful' memories for Norway: PM

What New Zealand the U.S. Norway and Canada Have in Common After the Christchurch Attack

"New Zealand Police alerted us to a video on Facebook shortly after the livestream commenced and we quickly removed both the shooter's Facebook and Instagram accounts and the video", a Facebook spokeswoman told CNN.

Several others are shown gathering in front of the scene that was surrounded with police tape.

At least 49 people were killed in the attacks on two mosques during Friday prayers.

PewDiePie is speaking out after the Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand that left 49 dead.

A 28-year old man has been charged with murder.

More than 40 people injured in the shootings are being treated in hospitals, Ardern said, and two of them remain in a critical condition.

Asked if he'd seen the manifesto, Trump said: "I did not see it".

While the man is now facing only one charge, further charges will be laid.

"Our investigations are in their early stages and we will be looking closely to build a picture of any of the individuals involved and all of their activities prior to this horrific event", Police Commissioner Mike Bush said.

CNN cites a 2015 study that reported New Zealand had an adjusted rate of about 1 gun death per 100,000 people, while in 2017, the United States has an adjusted rate of 12 gun deaths per 100,000 people. A "manifesto" was also posted online, denouncing immigrants as "invaders".

Derek Fildebrandt, leader of Freedom Conservative Party of Alberta, called the attack "so terribly sad", while Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel said the tragedy "reminds us that even in the most peaceful places, anger, hate, and bigotry still exist". "My message was sympathy and love for all Muslim communities".

"People started to pass by us with blood stains on their clothes, they were very scared and their voices were trembling, some people could not even speak", restaurant manager Prakash Sapkota, who was near the mosques, told Euronews.

"I can tell you one thing right now, our gun laws will change", Ardern told reporters.

He appeared to have begun buying guns the following month, she said.

The Muslim Council of Calgary said Friday the group and its affiliate organizations condemn the tragic shootings at the Al-Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch. And we stand in solidarity with our New Zealand allies and with Muslim communities at home and overseas.
