Nine Pakistanis killed in New Zealand mosques terrorist attack

Christchurch mosque shooting: Handcuffed, barefoot, main suspect smirks in court; next hearing on April 5

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said a "small number" of bodies would be returned to families from Sunday evening.

The New Zealand Herald has published the names of all the known terror attack victims so far.

Two other people have been apprehended and are being questioned about what role, if any, they had in the attacks.

"It did not include a location, it did not include specific details", she said, adding that it was sent to security services within two minutes of receipt.

The victims' bodies have not been released to their families yet, but coroners and pathologists were working to determine the cause of deaths as quickly as possible: "We have to be absolutely clear on cause of death", he said. "But we are so aware of the cultural and religious needs".

Police said three people were in custody including a man in his late 20s who's been charged with murder.

Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more were left injured in two separate attacks on two mosques in Christchurch.

One person at the second mosque was being hailed for distracting and confronting the shooter, preventing further deaths.

In his tweet on Sunday, the Pakistan PM said: "We stand ready to extend all our support to the families of Pakistani victims of the terrorist attack in Christchurch".

"It's a massacre, what else do they need to know?", Sheikh Amjad Ali, an assistant school principal who had travelled from Auckland to help with the funeral arrangements, told AFP about some frustrations with the wait. "Then he went to the mosque as usual and we are not hearing from him", he said. "We will do whatever we can to help them heal and rise above this bad tragedy".

The Prime Minister said the advice she had received from police indicated that the timing of the email and the information it contained did not provide enough time for response.

A stream of victims' friends and relatives entered, one woman carrying sandwiches and falafel.

"I wish with everything in my heart she hadn't had to, but I am proud that she did".

"You may have chosen us - we utterly reject and condemn you".

Tarrant, the suspect, had posted a jumbled 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto online before the attacks and apparently used a helmet-mounted camera to broadcast live video of the slaughter.

Imran had dropped off his father, an electrical engineer, at the Al Noor mosque on Friday and was looking for a parking space when the shooting began.

Facebook, Twitter and Google scrambled to take down the gunman's video, which was widely available on social media for hours after the bloodbath.

Aziz was at the Linwood mosque with his four sons when he rushed the attacker armed with the only weapon he could find - a hand-held credit card machine.

Ardern added that the gunman reportedly had five firearms on him when he carried out the assault - two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm.

It has also has emerged that a former soldier raised concerns about extremism at Tarrant's gun club in Dunedin, a city 4.5 hours drive south of Christchurch where the Australian had been living.

The country's gun laws are largely unchanged since 1992, when controls were tightened after the 1990 Aramoana massacre, in which a man killed 13 people with a semi-automatic rifle.

At least one of the weapons used by Tarrant was reportedly an AR-15 - the same semi-automatic rifle used in a number of mass shootings in the United States, including the 2012 Sandy Hook school killings in CT.
