He did not apply for bail or to have his name suppressed and has been remanded in custody without plea until April 5.

After the suspect left the court, the judge said that while "there is one charge of murder brought at the moment, it is reasonable to assume that there will be others".

Tarrant had reportedly posted a manifesto online in which he identified himself as a white man, born in Australia, and listed the white nationalists who have inspired him, according to CNN.

When the gunman entered the Al Noor mosque, there were around 400 people inside. Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay on the floor, the video showed.

A gunman attacked the mosques on Friday, killing 50 people and leaving dozens badly injured.

In light of the deadly attack, the St. Paul Police Department said they will be making more frequent visits to mosques in the city and spend more time in nearby areas. No images have emerged from the second mosque.

Police said the alleged shooter was arrested in a auto, which was carrying improvised explosive devices, 36 minutes after they were first called.

"The offender was mobile, there were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in, and it absolutely was his intention to continue with his attack", Ardern told reporters in Christchurch on Saturday.

Although shops were shuttered and many made a decision to stay at home, Christchurch residents piled bouquets of flowers at a makeshift memorial near the Al Noor mosque, many accompanied with handwritten letters laden with sadness and disbelief.

Ms Ardern said she would be reviewing events leading up to the attack to see how the suspect went unnoticed by authorities.

Doctors at Christchurch hospital said they worked through the night in 12 operating theatres to do what they could to save the survivors. "There were elderly people sitting there praying and he just started shooting at them".

The third cricket test between New Zealand and Bangladesh, whose team were on a bus approaching one of the mosques with the attack underway, was canceled on Friday.

Tarrant's manifesto said he took "inspiration" from other right-wing extremists including racist Norwegian killer Anders Behring Breivik, who murdered 77 people in Norway in 2011 motivated by his hatred of multiculturalism. Another died in hospital.

And as of Wednesday night, the campaign - created by lifelong Jazz fan Devin Deaton of Sandy, Utah - had raised more than $9,000. Keisel, and four other fans had been issued warning cards by security during the game for inappropriate behavior.

In online forums, people discussed Muslim food restrictions as they prepared to drop off meals for those affected.

"Hi guys how are you".

"We have had patients with injuries to most parts of the body that range from relatively superficial soft tissue injuries to more complex injuries involving the chest, the abdomen, the pelvis, the long bones and the head", Roberson said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday wrote to his New Zealand counterpart expressing his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.

New Zealand's reputation as a laid-back and safe country, where even police are mostly unarmed, belies easy access to weapons and a private firearm ownership rate among the highest in the world.

The New Zealand PM flew into Christchurch on Saturday, where she met with families and Muslim community leaders. Ardern said some were from Pakistan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The Crusaders are the defending champions in Super Rugby, a competition that involves teams from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Japan and Argentina.

"For once, the person that will be called a fascist, is an actual fascist, I am sure the journalists will love that", he wrote.

When asked about whether the same person carried both shootings, Bush said officials were not aware of anything that would contradict that suggestion.

"She came here for the peace.now she is shocked", he said, adding his mother was too afraid to leave her house.

Tributes to the victims poured in from around the world.

She is calling for gun reform in the wake of the killings.

None of those arrested had appeared on a watchlist of New Zealand or Australian security agencies, police have confirmed.

The AR-15 is a semi-automatic version of the United States military M16 rifle.
