PewDiePie Addresses The Christchurch Shooter’s Words Before Opening Fire

In addition, police are aware of a video shared online, and broadcast live during the attack, that purports to show a gunman walking into an unnamed mosque and opening fire.

One man outside the mosque said that he prayed that the gunman would "run out of bullets". Several more people were killed in an attack on a second mosque in the city a short time later.

"Muslims have been living in New Zealand (for) over 100 years and nothing has ever happened to us like this, so this is not going to change the way we feel about New Zealand at all".

A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for the attack.

Before Friday, New Zealand's worst mass shooting was in 1990 when a gun-mad loner killed 13 men, women and children in a 24-hour rampage in the tiny seaside village of Aramoana.

"Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch".

Just 1% of New Zealand's population of nearly five million are Muslim, according to government statistics, less than 50,000 people in 2013.

Forty-one of those slain were at the Masjid al Noor in central Christchurch, police said. It is the busiest day for many mosques around the world when Muslims convene for Friday prayers.

Australia's prime minister Scott Morrison has since confirmed that one of those arrested was an Australian citizen.

Christchurch remains in lockdown with the authorities urging anyone planning to visit a mosque in New Zealand to refrain from doing so. "Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have been found and they have been disarmed". He walks back into the mosque, where there are at least two dozen people lying on the ground. He said he was not a member of any organisation, but had donated to and interacted with many nationalist groups, though he acted alone and no group ordered the attack.

New Zealand, with a population of 5 million, has relatively loose gun laws and an estimated 1.5 million firearms, or roughly one for every three people. The connection to PewDiePie was viewed as part of that strategy by many.

Last year, New Zealand's prime minister announced that the country would boost its annual refugee quota from 1,000 to 1,500 in 2020. Sometimes called the garden city, it has been rebuilding since an quake in 2011 killed 185 people and destroyed many downtown buildings.
