Aberdeen man living in New Zealand describes ‘horrific’ aftermath of Christchurch attack

The massacre during Friday prayers prompted a heartfelt response from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who pronounced it "one of New Zealand's darkest days" and said the shooter, an Australian native, had chosen to strike in New Zealand "because we represent diversity, kindness, compassion". Many, such as the alt-right, are hidden in plain sight, with their proponents given a platform on social media websites - including Facebook, on which one of the terrorists in New Zealand live-streamed his rampage - as well as mainstream Western news outlets.

Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, was apprehended 36 minutes after the first call, the prime minister revealed as she praised the two rural community policemen from Lincoln, a small town 22km southwest of Christchurch, who responded to the emergency.

Worshipers ran from gunfire, desperately called police and huddled beneath the benches of two Christchurch mosques before two lightly armed community police officers apparently ran the gunman's vehicle to the side of the road and brought the atrocity to an end after a terrifying 36 minutes.

As New Zealand recovers from this shocking incident, we want to ask you, the readers, if you think the attack proves that terror has no religion.

He was not a resident of Christchurch, the prime minister added. The fourth person, arrested by law enforcement, was a member of the public member in possession of a firearm, who wanted to assist the police, according to Ardern.

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush had earlier said that Tarrant had been charged with one count of murder, with other charges to follow.

He appeared in court a day after the shootings at the Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Masjid mosques.

The police initially said that four people had been detained in the wake of the attacks.

London mayor London Sadiq Khan said: "We may be more than 11,000 miles away from Christchurch but we feel the ripples of hatred, we feel the ripples of fear and we feel the ripples of sorrow of our brothers".

Christchurch was the home of these victims. He was wearing a tunic and was handcuffed. He did not request bail and was taken into custody until his next court appearance which is scheduled for April 5.

"I can tell you one thing right now, our gun laws will change", Ardern told reporters, saying a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be considered.

A five-year-old girl was critically wounded and had surgery but remained in serious condition, her uncle, Sabri al-Daraghmeh, told Jordan's al-Mamlaka TV.

Tyreek Hill investigated for battery, report says
Hill completed his probation in August, causing the domestic-abuse charges to be dismissed and his record to be expunged. They also reported that Hill's name was not mentioned in their report, but his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, is mentioned.

The suspect is accused of carrying out two deadly shootings at mosques and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says he would certainly have carried out further violence if not apprehended.

Condemning the terror strike, Ardern had described it as a "terror attack" and said it "appears to have been well planned".

New Zealand police said last year that murder rates had dropped to the lowest level in 40 years, with 48 homicides in 2017.

The Australian gunman, who had based himself in Dunedin, used two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm, Ms Ardern said. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going.

In signs police say show a well-planned attack, army personnel were also called in to dismantle explosive devices found in a stopped auto and officers were on Friday evening searching a house in Dunedin, 360 kilometres away, clearing nearby homes for safety.
