New Zealand Mosque Shootings Put Focus on Country's Firearms
16 March, 2019, 15:44
A dozen people are still critical and at least one child is among the dead as New Zealand remains in shock and grief after twin shootings at mosques.
Mr Nabi said he came to the Christchurch Law Courts where Mr Tarrant appeared "to have a look, a look at his face". The shooter, who had a gun license acquired in November 2017, carried out the killings with two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm, Ardern said.
All mosques in New Zealand had been asked to shut their doors, police said. The minimum legal age to own a gun in New Zealand is 16, or 18 for military-style semi-automatic weapons.
Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, head of Counter Terrorism Policing, said on Friday: "Whilst there is no intelligence linking these appalling events in Christchurch to the United Kingdom, additional uniform patrols will continue in London and nationally over the coming days, focusing on places of worship and specific communities".
Tarrant, 28, was handcuffed and wearing a white prison jumpsuit when he quietly walked into the courtroom.
The man facing murder charges was an Australian citizen who had spent a lot of time travelling overseas and spent time only sporadically in New Zealand, Ardern said.
He said the Fijian people stood with their Pacific family in this time of suffering and sadness, and we condemn all forms of hatred and terror.
Tarrant is believed to be the author of a 74-age manifesto posted online before the attacks occurred.
"Syed Moazzam Shah, Minister Political, Pakistan High Commission in New Zealand, Cell +64 21 779 495 is our focal point". "FM Shah Mahmood Qureshi has condemned in the strongest terms the tragic terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand".
Tarrant's occupation was not given on the charging document, and his address was provided as a place in Dunedin, more than 300 km south of Christchurch in New Zealand's South Island.
Friday's mass shooting has renewed calls for a tough crackdown on New Zealand's gun laws in a country where there is one firearm to every four people. Outside one of the two mosques, 32-year-old Ash Mohammed pushed through police barricades on Saturday in hopes of finding out what happened to his father and two brothers, whose cellphones rang unanswered.
The weapons also appeared to have been modified, Ardern told reporters in Christchurch on Saturday. He did not apply for bail, or for his name to be suppressed.

The Anglican Diocese of Polynesia extended its "deepest sympathies to the Muslim community as you have once again, been a victim of this senseless act of violence resulting in the loss of life".
