The bodies of some of the victims in New Zealand's mosque shootings will be released on Sunday to loved ones for burial, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, as the death toll rose to 50 when police found another body.

Tarrant was also purportedly inspired to commit the mosque shootings by Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Oslo in 2011. The camera attached to his head recording the massacre follows the barrel of his weapon, like some macabre video game.

It was "reasonable to assume" Tarrant would face further murder charges, Judge Kellar said. Ardern said police would be posted at all mosques while they are open. No images have emerged from there.

Ms Ardern told reporters a copy of the document was emailed to her office nine minutes before the mosque attacks began.

Tarrant did not have a criminal history and was not on any watchlists in New Zealand or Australia.

He said he survived by playing dead, but was desperate to know what happened to his friends who were there with him. Thirty- six people were still being treated on Saturday, 11 of whom remained in intensive care. One victim died in hospital. "People see a gun now and they freak out." says Anthony, who also condemned the attack.

When asked if Facebook should stop live-streaming, Ms Ardern said: "Certainly, I have had contact from Sheryl Sandberg".

"Hi guys how are you".

Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both mosques in Christchurch, which is still rebuilding after an natural disaster in 2011 killed nearly 200 people. She asserted that New Zealand "will not and can not be shaken" by this attack. Authorities were working to find out how he had obtained the weapons and a license, and how he was able to enter the country to carry out the attack, she said.

People gather at a vigil to mourn for the victims of the Christchurch mosque attack in New Zealand, at Washington Square Park in Manhattan, in New York City, New York, U.S. March 15, 2019.

Most of the victims of the attacks were immigrants from Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, Somalia and Afghanistan.

New Zealanders have responded to the attacks with an outpouring of interfaith solidarity - crowdfunding millions of dollars, donating halal food and even offering to accompany local Muslims now scared to walk the streets.

"I can confirm that the bodies of those who have died are beginning to be returned to their families from this evening", she said, adding that all were expected to be released by Wednesday, March 20.

Unlike the US, the right to own a firearm is not enshrined in New Zealand's constitution.

"Now is the time for change", Ardern argued. Story continues after video.

The violence has also shone a new light on gun control.

Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonisation of Muslims. "My message was sympathy and love for all Muslim communities", she said she told him.
