Mosque attacks spark outrage, fuel concern over Islamophobia

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

On Twitter, Ranstorp noted that the New Zealand shooter claimed he would leave prison after 27 years and likened himself to late South African President Nelson Mandela, saying he would get the Nobel Peace Prize.

"We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism, because we are enclave for extremism", Ardern said in a national address.

Young children were among 48 people being treated at Christchurch Hospital.

The now 40-year-old Norwegian had also posted a more than 1,500-page manifesto in which he called on others to follow his example.

An outpouring of condolences and support came from across New Zealand and other nations.

New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Ardern said, adding that "this can now only be described as a terrorist attack".

He has not been officially named, but Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he was an Australian citizen, and described him as "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

Her foreign minister, Heiko Maas, said: "When people are murdered exclusively due to their religion, this is an attack on us all". "There were three in the hallway, at the door leading into the mosque, and people inside the mosque", he said. Multiple people are feared dead in the incident.

AFP determined the video was genuine through a digital investigation that included matching screenshots of the mosque taken from the gunman's footage with multiple images available online showing the same areas.

While his manifesto and video were an obvious and contemptuous ploy for infamy, they do contain important clues for a public trying to understand why anyone would target dozens of innocent people who were simply spending an afternoon engaged in prayer.

He added: "I am just a regular White man, from a regular family".

Luke Western, a Christian and content director of Rhema Media in New Zealand, told Premier he was surprised and saddened by the attack.

Harun Khan, head of the Muslim Council of Britain said British Muslims preparing for Friday prayers "do so with the anxiety as to whether our mosques and communities are safe in the face of unabated Islamophobia and hostility against Muslims".

He compared it to the shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11 people last October, deadly attacks on churches in Egypt by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and an attack by a far-right Israeli gunman on a West Bank mosque in 1994 that killed 29 people.

After going back outside and shooting a woman there, he gets back in his vehicle, where a song can be heard blasting. He also reported two injured victims being carried out on stretchers past his automotive shop and that both people appeared to be alive.

Armed police following a shooting at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, on March 15, 2019.

The gunman said he was not a member of any organization, acted alone and chose New Zealand to show that even the most remote parts of the world were not free of "mass immigration".

"Horrified to hear of Christchurch mosque shootings".
