Dead In Horrific Terrorist Attack In New Zealand As Muslims Targeted

Witnesses to the shootings

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called the shooting an "unprecendented attack of violence". Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, speaking on Checkpoint, said the country had been robbed of its "innocence", while Andrew Little, the justice minister, affirmed, "There is no place for hate in New Zealand". Some people have minor wounds while others are in a critical condition. It wasn't immediately clear how or if the two people in custody who weren't charged are connected to the terror attack.

Mr Bush says three men and one woman are in custody over the shootings. Among them were the Bangladesh national cricket team, in New Zealand for a test match.

"This is a location of interest in relation to the serious firearms incident in Christchurch today", the police wrote on Twitter. They gave no details.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had previously confirmed that 40 people were dead and over 20 were injured.

- One man has been charged with murder.

Announcing the murder charges Friday, Bush did not say whether the same shooter was believed to be responsible for both attacks.

New Zealand police were hunting "an active shooter" in the centre of Christchurch city on Friday after a gunman opened fire at a mosque inflicting several casualties. "Additional patients with gunshot wounds presented to other health facilities in the community", the health authority said.

Forty-one of those slain were at the Masjid al Noor in central Christchurch, police said. The gunman, who was wearing a helmet with some sort of device on the top, then exited the mosque, dropping a semi-automatic weapon as he fled the scene.

The police also advised local residents to stay away from mosques until further notice.

"The content of the video is disturbing and will be harmful for people to see", the spokesman said.

A fourth person was apprehended but later released after it was determined to be an armed bystander trying to help authorities. He said one was slightly injured. "It was an unprecedented act of violence", she said. "I just don't understand it".

The video shows the gunman then driving off at high speed and firing from his vehicle.

He then walks outside to the street, where he shoots at people on the pavement.

In the video, the shooter parks his auto next to the mosque and gets out of the vehicle with a rifle. After walking back outside and shooting a woman there, he gets back in his vehicle and drives away. The video then cuts out.

"Indonesia strongly condemns this shooting act, especially at a place of worship while a Friday prayer was ongoing", Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in a statement.

"My heart breaks for the victims of the horrific attack in New Zealand".

Police warned Muslims against going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand. For many, this may not have been the place they were born, in fact for many, New Zealand was their choice.

London mosques have been targeted in the past. "My heart goes out to all the New Zealand families..."

In a measure of New Zealand's welcoming attitude toward immigrants, the prime minister announced past year that the country would boost its annual refugee quota from 1,000 to 1,500 starting in 2020.

"I have been calling my friends but there are many I haven't heard from".

Christchurch airport is operating as normal. He said about 200 family members were at the hospital awaiting news of their loved ones.

In 2010 and 2011 the city suffered a series of devastating earthquakes, with the most destructive at 6.3 magnitude, which killed almost 200 people and destroyed thousands of buildings.

It's also requesting extra police patrols at their mosque in Old Irving Park, their education center in Morton Grove, and their campus in Skokie.
