Toronto vigil honors victims of New Zealand mosque shootings

49 Dead In 'Terrorist Attack' At 2 Mosques In Christchurch, New Zealand

In response to the attacks, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the massacre as a "terrorist attack" at a news conference, saying: "These are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand and in fact have no place in the world".

US President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised by the accused gunman in a manifesto posted online as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose". Malaysia said two of its citizens were hospitalized, and the Saudi Embassy in Wellington said two Saudis were wounded. The inverse of this phenomenon is, of course, that it gives oxygen to the propaganda machine of radical fringe elements spreading hatred against the West and religious minorities in Muslim countries, thus perpetuating an unending cycle of hate.

He travelled more frequently in the past two years on what he said were reconnaissance trips to mosques, working out which to target, according to a detailed manifesto he wrote spelling out sickening reasons for the mass Christchurch executions.

His manifesto was a welter of often politically contradictory views, touching on numerous most combustible issues of the day, among them the Second Amendment right to own guns, Muslim immigration, terrorist attacks and the wealthiest 1 per cent.

Pittsburgh Public Safety Increasing Patrols At Mosques In Response To New Zealand Shootings

Hundreds of angry protesters in Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital, chanted "Allahu akbar!"

Both mosques were full of worshippers attending Friday prayers when the shootings occurred.

Premier Scott Moe expressed his condolences Friday to the affected families and to, "the Muslim community here in the province that we represent, but also across the nation". Mark Nichols told the New Zealand Herald that he heard about five gunshots and that a worshipper returned fire with a rifle or shotgun. He has been charged with murder, though police said they expect further charges to be laid.

The increased presence will be particularly noticeable during prayer times, police said. Everything was going normally, but suddenly we just started hearing sirens blaring from every direction. "I don't understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker tweeted that he learned of the attack "with horror and profound sadness". Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have now been found and they have been disarmed.


Immigrants "have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home", Ardern said.

"It's something that I think has shattered the sense of security of Muslims, certainly in New Zealand, and in Australia and nearby, as well around the world. We are happy", he said, thanking the majority of New Zealanders who "are very keen to support all of us".

Four New Zealand women hugged each other outside the cordon. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all said they had taken steps to remove copies of the videos.

"When the flames of hatred are fanned, when people are demonized due to their faith, when people's fears are played on rather than addressed, the consequences are deadly, as we have seen so sadly today". Whatever colour you are, what background you are, who you are, what religion you are - I mean, who cares?

The gunman shot dead 49 people and wounded more than 40 at two New Zealand mosques on Friday.

They shared a video message from musicians SOL3MIO, who dedicated a song to "New Zealand, and to family and friends".

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said the attack brought back memories of 2011, when anti-Muslim extremist Anders Breivik killed 77 at a youth gathering on a Norwegian island: "It shows that extremism is nurtured and that it lives in many places".
