Australian man charged over Christchurch massacre appears in court

Tory leader Scheer issues new statement on attacks including mention of Muslims

Tarrant said nothing, entered no plea to the charge and did not apply to have his name withheld.

The Linwood mosque shooting claimed seven lives while a second shooting, at the Al Noor mosque, resulted in 41 dead.

A man in his 20s has been charged with murder and will soon appear in court, according New Zealand's police commissioner.

The attack has prompted an outpouring of grief and deep shock in this usually peaceful and hospitable country, which prides itself on welcoming refugees fleeing violence or persecution.

"Far too often, Muslims suffer unimaginable loss and pain in the places where they should feel safest", Trudeau said in a statement.

"We're now in contact with the Muslim leadership in the community to come up with a safety plan for them", said Ehalt.

Word of the attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand - killing 49 people during Friday prayers - had already become common knowledge to most in attendance at Windsor Mosque on Northwood Street.

At first, Mr Taylor and his colleagues had no idea what was happening, initially believing the alarms, sirens and general panic sweeping through the New Zealand city were signs of another quake, similar to the 6.2-level seismic disaster that destroyed massive swathes of the city in 2011.

Keats said she helped one of the men take cover behind her auto and applied pressure to his wound.

At least 49 people were killed in separate attacks on two mosques in Christchurch on Friday, horrifying New Zealanders. Tarrant was also a legal gun owner and used legal means to acquire the five guns used in Friday's attacks, according to Ardern.

"I can tell you one thing right now - our gun laws will change", she said.

He "travelled sporadically to New Zealand and stayed for varied amount of time", Ardern said, adding that he was not on the watch list in either New Zealand or Australia. "You don't think something like this can happen in New Zealand, in Christchurch of all places with such a small community, kind and loving". They included a two-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl, who is in critical condition.

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

A Saudi man, Mohsin Al-Mozaini was among the dead, AlArabiya reported.

Jordan's King Abdullah II tweeted that "the heinous massacre against Muslims praying in peace in New Zealand is an appalling terrorist crime".

"He had a big gun.He came and started shooting everyone in the mosque, everywhere", said the man, Ahmad Al-Mahmoud.

But Yasalar said there is no escaping the horrendous magnitude of the events in Christchurch.

Facebook said it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced" after being alerted by police. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all said they had taken steps to remove copies of the videos.

The former fitness instructor and self-professed fascist occasionally turned to look at media present in court during the brief hearing that the public were excluded from for security reasons.

Christchurch is a city of about 400,000 residents, still recovering from a massive quake in 2011 that killed 187 people.

The court appearance lasted only about a minute and he was led back out in handcuffs.

Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both mosques in the South Island city, which is still rebuilding after a devastating quake in 2011 that killed nearly 200 people.

Schools, institutions and workplaces went forced into lockdown for three and half hours on Friday afternoon as police hunted the shooters.
