Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at least three Turkish citizens were wounded in the attacks in New Zealand and that he has spoken to one of them.

Two other people remain in custody, although their link to the attack is not clear.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the man "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

The man who claimed responsibility for the shooting said he came to New Zealand only to plan and train for the attack.

Tarrant has been identified as a suspected white supremacist, based on his social media activity.

49 people have been confirmed dead and more than 20 are injured following attacks at two mosques. In addition to the dead, she said more than 20 people were seriously wounded. One person taken to a hospital died from injuries sustained during the attack. Police also defused explosive devices in a auto. With a grim expression, she said the country seems to have been targeted because of its welcoming and tolerance. Tarrant has spent little time in Australia in the past four years and only had minor traffic infractions on his record. "One leg of an injured needed to be amputated while another suffered bullet injuries in his chest", Rahman Bhuiyan said.

"They are us", she said.

Australian-born 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant stood in the dock wearing handcuffs and a white prison smock, as the judge read a single murder charge against him. But it has one of the lowest gun homicide rates in the world.

When asked what he thought of the prime minister suggesting there should be a change in New Zealand's gun laws, the police commissioner said he was "happy to hear" that.

The suspected gunman got a "category A" firearms license in 2017, and began stockpiling weapons legally at that point, Ardern told reporters on Saturday.

Ardern also said it was believed the weapons used in the attack had been modified and that loopholes that allow such modifications would be closed in proposed gun reforms to be discussed by cabinet on Monday. The inverse of this phenomenon is, of course, that it gives oxygen to the propaganda machine of radical fringe elements spreading hatred against the West and religious minorities in Muslim countries, thus perpetuating an unending cycle of hate. "Many of the people require multiple trips to the theatre to deal with the complex series of injuries they have".

Cook Islands prime minister Herny Puna said his country's prayers first and foremost were with the victims of the shooting, "their families, friends and loved ones whe are now faced with the irreconcilable loss of their loved ones".

Many of you will have seen that Air New Zealand has cancelled all turboprop flights out of Christchurch tonight and will review the situation in the morning.

He appeared in court a day after the shootings at the Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Masjid mosques. I mean, you're killing people. "I don't understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone".

He then walks outside to the street, where he shoots at people on the sidewalk.

After going back outside and shooting a woman there, he gets back in his vehicle, where a song can be heard blasting. The singer bellows, "I am the god of hellfire!" and the gunman drives away. Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population.

The gunman live-streamed the attack on social media. "There is no place in New Zealand for such acts of extreme and unprecedented violence", Ardern said.

This is the worst mass shooting in New Zealand's history.
