At Least 49 Dead in New Zealand Mosques Shooting

17 March 2019

The gunman in the attacks on two New Zealand mosques, which left 49 people dead, reportedly live streamed video of the shooting for almost 17 minutes.

She also said that she hoped the country would re-examine its gun control laws because "while we do have gun control, we can do better". However, The Washington Post reported last week that internal Federal Bureau of Investigation data showed more domestic terror suspects were arrested previous year than those allegedly inspired by worldwide terror groups.

At least one was a shotgun but others appeared to be similar to the semi-automatic rifles used in a number of USA mass shootings and equipped with large-capacity magazines.

The attacks targeted the Masjid al Noor mosque, where 41 people died, and a second, smaller mosque in the suburb of Linwood, where seven more died.

The shootings in New Zealand show how the services they offer can be exploited by extremist groups, said Lucinda Creighton, senior advisor to the Counter Extremism Project.

Two IEDs (improvised explosive devices) were found in a auto and neutralised by the military, police said.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated that the shooter in the Christchurch mosque attack was an Australian citizen, describing the suspect as an "extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

The survivors included 17 members of Bangladesh's cricket team, whose game against New Zealand on Saturday has been postponed, and a Palestinian man who fled for his life after seeing someone being shot in the head. "The gunshots sounded like pop, pop, pop.I heard over 50". "A jew living in Israel is no enemy of mine, so long as they do not seek to subvert or harm my people", he wrote.

Ardern explained the perpetrator was in possession of five firearms, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns. "It must have been an automatic - no one could pull a trigger that quick", the man who did not wish to be named, told AFP.

New Zealand police said three people were in custody including one man in his late 20s who was charged with murder.

Police also attended a property in Dunedin which they believe is linked to the attack and evacuated nearby residents.

Ali said "there is a reason" why the suspected shooter named Trump in his manifesto.

The attack has shocked the local Muslim population, many of whom had come to New Zealand as refugees.

"What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence".

Social media platforms including Facebook are facing harsher scrutiny after a shooter accused of killing 40 people in two mosques in New Zealand appeared to livestream the murders over the internet.

Police officers cordon off the area after gunmen attacked the two mosques and fired multiple times during Friday prayers in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15, 2019. The quick response marked a stark contrast to reactions by other leaders in countries where mass shootings have occurred, who often respond far more cautiously to demands to reform gun ownership laws. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured.

Trump himself telephoned New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, offering condolences, prayers and any help the US might be able to provide.

"If he went to New Zealand to commit these crimes", Alpers said, "one can assume that the ease of obtaining these firearms may have been a factor in his decision to commit the crime in Christchurch".
