Chinese community in Christchurch condemns mosques attack, renders help to victims

During the Saturday morning hearing, a man who was not in court was charged with using writings to incite hatred against a race or ethnicity, but it was not clear if his case was related to Tarrant's. Ardern said more charges would be laid. Handcuffed and wearing a white prison suit, Tarrant did not speak. Unfortunate rise in white supremacist and Islamaphobic attacks. He will be held in custody until an April 5 court appearance.

Mucad was the youngest victim named on an incomplete and unconfirmed list being circulated by families of the deceased. Victim Naeem Rashid, 50, was seen lunging at the attacker Brenton Tarrant, 28, in the live-stream video from the Al Noor mosque.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said some of the victims may have been new immigrants or refugees.

"New Zealand is united in grief", she said.

The list also documents the global scale of the tragedy, with those killed hailing from across the Muslim world and including members of two generations of the same family.

Ardern said the victims came from across the Muslim world, with Turkey, Bangladesh, and Malaysia among the countries rendering consular assistance.

Teammate Josh Margetts said: "There is a huge hole in our hearts as we come to terms with the loss of a great person and a good mate".

"There is also one 4-year-old girl in Starship Hospital in Auckland in a critical condition". He was shot in the abdomen and the leg.

Two Indonesians, a father and son, were also among those shot and wounded, Foreign Ministry spokesman Arrmanatha Nasir said.

The firearms included two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns and a lever-action weapon, she said, speaking to reporters in Wellington before heading to Christchurch.

"While work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now: Our gun laws will change", she said at a news conference on Saturday.

At the centre, where she was joined by ministers and other politicians, she was asked for assurance around security and arrangements for mosques.

Abdul Aziz, 48, told media he heard shooting and ran outside the mosque, shouting at the gunman and drawing him away from the building, the Newshub website reported.

In the manifesto, Tarrant identifies himself as "European" rather than as an Australian citizen and wrote that he grew up in the small working-class community in Grafton, located more than 300 miles northeast of Sydney.

"We would strongly urge that link not be shared".

The brazen nature of the broadcast, and the apparent failure of tech companies to prevent its proliferation online, raised concerns.

Church services for victims of the attack have been held across the country, including at Christchurch's "Cardboard Cathedral", a temporary structure built after much of the central city was destroyed in a 2011 natural disaster.

Authorities said 34 people remained in hospital.

A fourth person was arrested yesterday in the wake of the shootings, but has been released without charge. The other two remain in custody but their role in the shootings remains unclear.
