Christchurch attacker meant to continue rampage when arrested: PM Ardern

Christchurch attacker meant to continue rampage when arrested: PM Ardern

Global media were packed outside the court before the hearing, along with heavily armed police and security staff. Flanked by two police officers, he smirked when media persons photographed him during the hearing and was seen making the white power gesture.

He was remanded without a plea until his next scheduled appearance in the South Island city's High Court on April 5.

The Indian Express newspaper identified the victim as 34-year-old Mohammed Juned Kara from the western state of Gujarat.

Four people died en route to hospital.

A second survivor, Faisal Sayed, said: "If that hadn't happened, many more would have died and I wouldn't be here now".

Mr Nabi said he was approaching one of the mosques with his 8-year-old daughter when he learned about the attacks from police who were telling people to avoid the area.

"It's outrageous, the feeling is outrageous", he said. Some were from Pakistan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia, Ardern said. He said he and others escaped by breaking through a glass door.

Why was the country, thought of as among the most peaceful in the world, singled out for a horrifying terrorist attack?

"If Jacinda Ardern moves as quickly as [former Australian prime minister] John Howard did [when he banned guns following the 1996 Port Arthur massacre], and she does it in 12 days, the probability is that she will be able to do what she wants to do", Alpers told the Guardian. "I will keep watch while you pray". "Our hearts are breaking for your loss", read one of the notes marked with a string of x-kisses.

Immigrants "have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home", Ardern said.

Likewise, the Boeing 737 didn't operate on a regular basis from Bradley International Airport when they were flying, said Kevin A. Ethiopian Airlines said earlier it would send the two cockpit voice and data recorders overseas for analysis.

"The offender was in possession of a gun licence" obtained in November 2017, and he started purchasing the weapons the following month, she said. She said the shooter had five guns, two of them semi-automatic.

A number of improvised explosive devices found on a vehicle after the shootings were defused by police.

Mourners pay their respects at a makeshift memorial near the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, Saturday, March 16, 2019.

Thirty-six minutes after the police received the first call, Mr Tarrant was in custody.

At least 49 people were killed in the attacks on two mosques. "That these innocent victims were murdered in their house of worship adds an additional dimension of horror to a deeply tragic situation", Rosenthal said.

Tributes to the victims poured in from around the world.

The suspect is accused of carrying out two deadly shootings at mosques and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says he would certainly have carried out further violence if not apprehended.

"He used to tell us life was good in New Zealand and its people are good and welcoming".

The attack has prompted searching questions about whether right-wing extremism has been treated with enough seriousness by Western governments.

Ardern said Saturday that she had met with relatives of the victims and their "key concern" was to have access to their loved ones' remains for burial. She is also seeking answers from intelligence agencies about whether any social media posts should have been picked up on and were not. "That work is already underway", she said.
