New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Sunday said that she received a "manifesto" from the terrorists who opened fire in two churches in Christchurch just nine minutes before the attack. Another victim died later in Christchurch hospital.
A total of 50 people were killed in Friday's New Zealand shooting by a self-described white supremacist, who live-streamed the terror attack on Facebook.
At least 49 people are confirmed dead, with more than 40 people injured following attacks on two mosques in Christchurch on Friday afternoon. Police have warned the public that sharing the video is an offence and social media companies have said they are trying to scrub it from their platforms.
"I will not be saying anything conclusive until we are absolutely convinced as to how many people were involved, but we hope to be able to give that advice over the next few days", he said.
Farid Ahmad, whose 44-year-old wife Husna was killed as she rushed back into a mosque to rescue him, refused to harbour hatred toward the gunman, Australian-born, self-avowed white nationalist, Brenton Tarrant.
Tarrant was remanded into custody and is expected to appear in court again on April 5.
There will likely be additional charges, reported CBC News, but the police have yet to release details of what they may be.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Mr Tarrant had a firearms licence and owned five guns.
The suspect is then said to have driven about 5km (three miles) to another mosque in the suburb of Linwood where the second shooting occurred. The pre-schooler was praying alongside her father Waseeim at the Al Noor mosque when she was shot at least three times.
"It is with sadness that I advise that number of people who died in this event has now risen to 50", Police Commissioner Mike Bush said.
Officials in New Zealand are now carrying out the hard task of identifying those who died.
