A Pittsburgh Jewish group is raising money for the victims of mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand as a show of gratitude for the previous generosity shown by Muslim groups.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush said the body of the 50th victim was found at the Al Noor mosque, where more than 40 people died after a gunman entered and shot randomly at people with a semi-automatic rifle with high-capacity magazines, before travelling to a second mosque to do the same.

"Many of the people require multiple trips to the theatre to deal with the complex series of injuries they have", said Christchurch Hospital's Chief of Surgery Greg Robertson.

Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, has been charged with murder in relation to the massacre on Friday, in which 49 people were killed and 42 injured.

Judge Paul Kellar said although Tarrant was facing only one murder charge, it was "reasonable to assume there will be other charges".

He also praised the two officers who arrested Tarrant.

The Pacific Music Awards organisation in New Zealand also expressed its shock and solidarity over the shootings. He said New Zealand , with a population of just under 5 million, had an estimated 1.5 million firearms.

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", said Ardern.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said Saturday that at least four Palestinians were among those killed, but acknowledged they could have been counted by Jordan or other countries.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the shooter, an Australian native, had chosen to strike in New Zealand "because we represent diversity, kindness, compassion".

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.

She added none of the three people who were arrested had a criminal history in Australia or New Zealand and were not not on the police's watch-list in either country.

Last remaining US diplomats leave Venezuela
He has also promised an investigation into Guaido for "alleged involvement in the sabotage of the Venezuelan electricity system". Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed the last remaining American diplomats have left the country.

"New Zealanders are devastated", Jackson said in a statement to Variety. One victim died at a hospital.

Khokhur, 58, and husband Mehaboobbhai Khokhur, 65, had traveled from India to spend time with their son Imran, their first visit in the eight years since he moved to New Zealand.

New Zealand law enforcement is working with Australian intelligence and police in the "wide-reaching" investigation, the commissioner said.

Police urged all mosques across New Zealand to stay closed over the weekend for security reasons. The minimum legal age to own a gun in New Zealand is 16, or 18 for military-style semi-automatic weapons. Therefore, as with so many high profile attackers in the US, there was nothing to prevent him from passing background checks to acquire a gun license.

During a Saturday press conference, Ardern said the gunman had two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns, and a lever-action firearm (five firearms in total).

Vehicles are prohibited, but people can walk closer to the mosques where the shooting happened on Friday.
