Christchurch carnage suspect charged with murder

Christchurch carnage suspect charged with murder

He is due back in court on April 5 and police said he was likely to face further charges. He was angry about attacks in Europe that were perpetrated by Muslims.

In the worst ever terror attack in New Zealand, multiple gunmen carried out indiscriminate shootings at two mosques in Christchurch during the Friday prayers, leaving 49 people dead and at least 48 wounded, besides giving a scare to the Bangladesh cricket team which had a narrow escape. President Donald Trump, in a statement issued Friday morning, extended his "warmest sympathy and best wishes" to the people of New Zealand. The maximum penalty for the charge is life imprisonment.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canadians are appalled by the attack and said they remember all too well the sorrow after a Canadian man shot dead six Muslim men in a Quebec mosque in 2017.

Mrs Fitzgerald said the family was "gobsmacked" to have learned Tarrant had been charged with murdering Muslims at mosques in Christchurch.

"This individual has traveled the around the world with sporadic periods of time spent in Christchurch", she said.

"I still don't know where he is", she said.

She did not offer too much detail, but said a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be looked at. Ardern said police recovered five guns at the scene - two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm.

Police are now trying to piece together answers to the hard questions of why and how this happened. "At this moment, only one person has been charged in relation to these attacks". Police are trying to ascertain their involvement.

New South Wales state Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said his officers are investigating to help New Zealand police and to ensure the safety of residents in the Australian state where suspect Brenton Tarrant is from.

Two other suspects have also been taken into custody. Other politicians on the mailing list included National leader Simon Bridges and Parliament Speaker Trevor Mallard.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) issued a plea on Twitter Wednesday night for advice on how to furnish her Washington apartment. José Serrano in the 2020 Democratic primary in the adjoining 15th District, The Post has learned.

Bush confirmed that an amount of fire arms were seized from the two mosques.

Ardern said some of the guns had been modified to make them deadlier. They have asked social media users to stop sharing the graphic footage, which was streamed live on Facebook.

Placards raised by demonstrators read "This is not New Zealand" and "We will win against racism and terror".

Ardern said New Zealand has suffered an "extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence", lamenting in particular that the violence targeted the country's immigrant population. Speaking at a news conference on Saturday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the suspect's auto was full of weapons, suggesting "his intention to continue with his attack".

A Whitehall source told the publication that MI5 was reviewing the 74-page manifesto - they are also probing any links to far-right extremists in the UK.

One photo also shows a tactical vest emblazoned with a neo-Nazi symbol known as the black sun, or Sonnenrad in German, used by white supremacist groups.

Gray's speculation was backed up by a rambling, hate-filled, manifesto Tarrant posted to social media ahead of the Christchurch killings.

He said a two-year-old boy was in stable condition, as was a 13-year-old boy.

In her 40-minute address, she also spoke about the importance of reuniting relatives with their loved ones "as quickly as possible", and said that bodies were still being removed from the Al Noor mosque - the site of the first attack.

Javed Dadabhai, who flew from Auckland after learning about the death of his 35-year-old cousin, Junaid Mortara, said the Muslim community was being patient.
