NZ to hold two-minute silence for victims

Jacinda Ardern

"He may have sought notoriety", Ardern said. "We normally wear black", she said.

A police spokesman would not confirm whether the RWR was still operating in Taranaki, how many members the group had or if there were any concerns its members might attempt a copy cat style attack. "But he will, when I speak, be nameless", she said.

During a visit to Hamza's high school on Wednesday, Ardern revisited that thought and asked students not to say the attacker's name or dwell on him. "Not even his name".

"Wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh" she said - 'May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you too'.

Two of the victims were students from the school. "I utterly reject the idea that in any way in trying to ensure that we have a system that looks after those who choose to call New Zealand home that we have perpetuated an environment where this kind of ideology can exist".

Bodies of the victims were being washed and prepared for burial in a Muslim ritual process yesterday, with teams of volunteers flown in from overseas to assist with the heavy workload.

Neighboring Australia, where the gunman is reportedly from, has much stricter laws.

"I don't agree with what you did. That you have great potential in your heart", said Mr Farhid Ahmed, 59.

Thirty people were still being treated at the hospital, nine of them in critical condition, said David Meates, CEO of the Canterbury District Health Board.

The gunman used a semi-automatic AR-15 during the mosque shootings, police said. I have heard her words - "we are one, they are us" - spoken back to me by the families of victims here in Christchurch, and seen it written on countless cards and posters alongside all the bouquets of flowers.

Ardern, her country's youngest leader in 150 years, has been lauded for her response since the Friday attack, as the face of a grieving but resilient nation.

A judge ordered Tarrant to return to New Zealand's High Court on April 5 for his next hearing on one count of murder, though he is expected to face additional charges.

President of the New Zealand Jewish Council Stephen Goodman stated that the New Zealand Jewish Council is "sickened" and "devastated" by the terrorist attacks that took place in Christchurch mosques, The Jewish Chronicle reported.

A gun club in the northern town of Kaitaia burned down early on Tuesday and police were treating the blaze as suspicious. But on Tuesday, Ardern expressed frustration that the video remained available online, four days after the attack.

Brenton Harrison Tarrant dismissed his lawyer on Saturday.

The gunman initiated the livestream using an app designed for extreme sports enthusiasts, with copies still being shared on social media hours later.

Police said the five people they have named were all male and died at the Al Noor mosque. They are the publisher. "But the form of distribution, the tools of organization, they are new", she said.

Social media companies have long argued that they are not responsible for what is put on their platforms but Ardern has countered that they can not simply be "all profit, no responsibility".

The Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism said Monday that it added "digital fingerprints" for the visually distinct videos to its list.

"We cannot know your grief but we can walk with you at every stage".

Ardern has said authorities hoped to release all the bodies by Wednesday and police said authorities were working with pathologists and coroners to complete the task as soon as they could. "We are united in fighting violent hatred and racism", he added.
