Many dead in New Zealand shooting at two mosques during Friday prayers

Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

Before the attacks, New Zealand was widely considered a placid, scenic land that doubled as the home of the hobbits in Jackson's cinematic versions of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy novels. This is a partial transcription of those press conferences in which she touches on her country's diversity, sending condolences to victims and their families and communities. At the same time as the PM was there, members of the Mongrel Mob, wearing branded jackets, vests, and t-shirts, were spotted. Eleven people remained in intensive care, hospital authorities said.

Tarrant - an Australian citizen - live-streamed chilling footage of the attack as it was in progress.

The Minneapolis Police Department will also be giving more attention to mosques and places of worship following the mass shootings.

Christchurch Hospital chief Greg Robertson said 7 of the 48 gunshot victims admitted after Friday's mosque shootings in have been discharged.

"Front of mind for them, of course, is fulfilling their religious expectations and that is burial".

"This is not the New Zealand that has welcomed them and that it is not a reflection of the New Zealand they know, and that sentiment came through very strongly". "I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11", Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan posted on social media. The two mosques were full as the attacks occurred just after Friday prayers had started.

Ardern's office said the suspect had sent the "manifesto" in a bulk email that included a generic address for the prime minister, the opposition leader, speaker of the parliament and around 70 media outlets a matter of minutes before the attack.

She pronounced it "one of New Zealand's darkest days". "The NYPD sees no New York City connection to the tragedy in New Zealand at this time, but we nevertheless stand prepared to protect the people in all of our communities", NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill added.

"I also pay tribute to the emergency services and volunteers who are providing support to those who have been injured".

These nihilist, clash-of-civilisations narratives - whichever ideologies inform them - leave all nations more vulnerable to extremist violence.

Shortly after he told his 51.9 million followers he'd been on the phone with the New Zealand's leader Jacinda Ardern to say he loves the country and that the USA stands in solidarity with them and is willing to provide any assistance. "A place where it was safe to practice their culture and religion".
