World shocked amid right-wing terror attacks on mosques

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated that the shooter in the Christchurch mosque attack was an Australian citizen, describing the suspect as an "extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he hoped New Zealand "will arrest these terrorists and do the necessary under the law of the country".

A spokesman for Peterborough Cathedral tweeted: "We are Deeply shocked at attacks on worshippers at Mosques in Christchurch NZ". However, a man who claimed to be responsible for the shootings left a 74-page "anti-immigrant manifesto" at the scene.

"Police can now confirm the lockdown of schools throughout Christchurch has been lifted", the police said in a statement. They gave no details.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan echoed Erdogan.

None of those in custody had been on any watch list.

Reports suggest that many of those affected are part of New Zealand's migrant and refugee communities.

The New Zealand government said it could be illegal to share the video, which showed the gunman repeatedly shooting at worshippers from close range.

The gunman sprayed innocent worshipers inside the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch for more than two minutes before running back out to the street, where he takes aim at people down the sidewalk before returning to his vehicle for a different weapon. At least one, though, is not believed to have had anything to do with the shooting.

"The two other people that have been apprehended, again in the possession of firearms in the general environment, we are working through to understand what their involvement is", he said.

Witness Len Peneha told The Associated Press he saw the gunman enter the mosque and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from the mosque in terror.

"There will be highly visible policing around mosques today, as well as armed response officers, as Londoners go to pray".

The footage showed he was carrying a shotgun and two fully automatic military assault rifles, with an extra magazine taped to one of the weapons so that he could reload quickly.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Jens Stoltenberg said the US-led alliance "stands with our friend and partner New Zealand in defence of our open societies and shared values".
