  • New Zealand mosque shooting: At least 49 killed after gunmen open fire

The mass shooting of 49 people at mosques in Christchurch is not only exponentially larger than the Aramoana shooting in 1990, but it also equates to the same number of gun homicides that happened in the country from 2010 to 2016, according to New Zealand police data.

One man has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the attack, while three other suspects are in police custody as authorities try to determine their involvement.

People caught up in the mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand have spoken of their terror as the massacre unfolded.

According to Australian media reports, the accused is BrentonTarrant, 28, from the city of Grafton in New South Wales, Australia.

He was not on a government watch list in either New Zealand or Australia. Words can not describe the pain we are feeling for you.

"We stand in solidarity with Muslims around the world in their shock, grief and outrage in the wake of these despicable attacks", said President Gertler, offering his condolences to U of T's Muslim community, and in particular the Muslim Students' Association.

"There's no place for this, this type of action", he said during an event in Saskatoon.

The shootings occurred at two different mosques in two separate locations, and police advised mosques across the country to "shut their doors". Moe said he had faith in the police services in Saskatoon and across the province.

In 2017, 43, 509 people applied for firearms licences, with 43,321 having one issued.

Vietnamese Ambassaador Le Quy Quynh said he was "very disappointed " with the attorney general's decision. Huong was sobbing as she spoke to Vietnamese Embassy officials after Thursday's court hearing ended.

A police officer stopped Ash Mohammed, who told the officer "we just wants to know if they are dead or alive".

Rivlin wrote that the "murder of people at prayer, in their most holy and sacred place, is a depraved and despicable act".

Our thoughts and our prayers are with those who have been impacted today.

Ihsaan Gardee said words matter and they embolden people to commit hateful acts. Instead, he simply says: "Let's get this party started". "This white supremacist ideology is growing and it is something of deep concern".

There are now four individuals who have been apprehended, but three are connected to this attack who are now in custody, one of which has publicly stated that they were Australian-born. We were chosen for the very fact that we are none of these things.

We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism, because we are en enclave for extremism.

"And to not use dog whistle politics to appeal to fringe groups, individuals who are espousing these horrific and hateful ideologies".

Muslims protest the Christchurch mosque attack in New Zealand in Dhaka, Bangladesh, March 15, 2019.

Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both mosques, while hundreds more gathered at an official area set up for people to pay their respects in the city's botanic gardens near the hospital where dozens of people are being treated for injuries. Because we represent diversity, kindness, compassion, a home for those who share our values, refuge for those who need it, and those values, I can assure you, will not and cannot be shaken by this attack. He said his brother last visited Jordan two years ago.
