Barefoot, Handcuffed, New Zealand Shooter Smirks In Court

Police said IEDs, improvised explosive devices, were found with a vehicle they stopped.

Footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" was also posted online that denounced immigrants as "invaders".

The attack, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern labelled as terrorism, was the worst ever peacetime mass killing in New Zealand and the country raised its security threat level to the highest.

"I think something must have changed in him during the years he spent travelling overseas", Gray told national broadcaster ABC. Some offered rides to the grocery store or volunteered to walk with their Muslim neighbours if they felt unsafe.

Grafton residents who knew Tarrant as a resident have told 9News they remember him as a "relatively normal" person who worked at a local gym.

"Love always wins over hate". We stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters to ensure that they remain this way. One victim died in hospital. After the visit, Ardern travelled to a hospital at which 39 people are being treated from injuries.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern arrived at Hagley College in the city to console the families of some of the victims of the shooting.

A noisy generator raring from a construction site next to the Christchurch Justice Precinct was a stark and irritating reminder of those tragic events, as media and members of the public gathered awaiting Tarrant's court appearance.

Nearby, Akhtar Khokhur leaned on the shoulders of her friend and cried as she held up her cellphone with an image of her husband. "She came here for the peace.now she is shocked", he said, adding his mother was too afraid to leave her house.

The video showed a man driving to the Al Noor mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people with a semi-automatic rifle with high-capacity magazines.

Leading the competition, Central Districts will be presented with the trophy next week at Hamilton's Seddon Park, after the other contender, Canterbury, withdrew from their final match of the season following Friday's gruesome attacks, New Zealand Herald reported. The couple was due to fly out Sunday. "The horrific active shooter scenario at a mosque is something we all pray never happens (but) there is no active intelligence that there is any immediate threat in the U.S. But we can not be complacent". They have not heard from him since. Forty-one people were killed at the Al Noor mosque.

At least 49 people were killed and dozens injured in the unprecedented attack that stunned the nation and the world.

The second attack took place at the Linwood mosque about 5 kilometres away.

Officers also discovered explosive devices in a auto, which were defused.

Officers arrested two others following the attacks and are now working to establish whether they had any involvement in the terror attacks against the Muslim community in New Zealand.

Tarrant, of New South Wales, obtained a gun license in November 2017 and started buying the weapons he used Friday about a month later, Ardern said.

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush confirmed Tarrant was involved in both shootings but stopped short of saying he was the sole gunman. Regardless of whether terrorist attacks are perpetrated by white or Islamist extremists, their narratives must not be enabled through whataboutery.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday wrote to his New Zealand counterpart expressing his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.

New Zealand, with a population of five million, has relatively loose gun laws and an estimated 1.5 million firearms, or roughly one for every three people.
