  • Mass shooting at mosque in Christchurch

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described one alleged gunman, who had Australian citizenship, as an "extremist, right-wing" terrorist.

Four people, including one woman, have been arrested by New Zealand authorities; the primary shooter Brenton Tarrant broadcast the attack at Al-Nour Mosque live on social media, and posted a link to an 87-page manifesto that was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack.

While platforms including Twitter and YouTube said they moved fast to remove the content, users reported it was still widely available hours after being first uploaded to the alleged shooter's Facebook account.

"We believe that 40 people have lost their lives in this act of extreme violence", she said on Friday.

As for the suspects, Ardern said, "these are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand".

Here is what we know about the attack. At the time of writing, the official death toll stands at 49. Police said multiple fatalities had occurred at two mosques, but it was unclear how many attackers were involved.

Police have warned worshippers not to visit mosques "anywhere in New Zealand". Two other men and one woman were detained nearby and firearms seized, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said.

Police also recovered suspected IEDs found attached to the attackers´ vehicles which were made safe by the military.

People comfort each other after a mass shooting targeting two Christchurch mosques.
