Toronto vigil honors victims of New Zealand mosque shootings

The death toll from the worst attack directed at Muslims in the West in modern times stood Saturday at 49More

The attack sent shockwaves through New Zealand, prompting Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to promise to change gun laws. He's accused of a shooting rampage Friday at two mosques in Christchurch that injured 48 people in addition to the dozens killed.

While the final casualty figures had not been confirmed when this edition went to press, New Zealand Police confirmed there were 49 people dead and multiple numbers in hospital with critical injuries.

"A category-A firearm holder can purchase the firearms without the magazines or the things that will enable them to be in the state that they were", New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush told reporters, according to the Guardian.

In contrast, President Donald Trump has repeatedly told mourning Americans in the wake of shootings that stricter gun control would make the country more risky, not less.

"The street that I work on was covered in SWAT cars, they were flying past every minute, and loads of police cars going back and forth, so that must have been when they found out that there were attacks in at least two places, the first mosque and the second mosque".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also condemned the fatal shootings, saying the attack on people during prayers is "absolutely appalling".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the tragedy as a "terrorist attack" and noted numerous victims could be migrants or refugees.

A man who stood outside a Manchester mosque after the shooting of 49 people at mosques in New Zealand said he wanted to "respond with friendship".

With the main suspect in custody, authorities are turning their focus to the victims and the families of those who lost their lives.

The terrorist also said in his anti-immigrant "manifesto" that he came to New Zealand only to plan and train for the attack.

The suspect documented his radicalisation and two years of preparations in a lengthy, meandering and conspiracy filled far-right "manifesto". Police say that this person was a member of the public armed with a gun with the intention of assisting officers.

President Donald Trump arrives to make a statement on the violence this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia at the White House on August 14, 2017, in Washington, D.C. New York Times op-ed contributor Wajahat Ali said Trump is "impotent" in condemning white nationalists.

Mr Tarrant was remanded in custody before a high court hearing on April 5 and he did not request bail.

Her father Waseem, 33, the brother of Mr Daraghmeh, is said to be in a stable condition.

Residents pay their respects by placing flowers for the victims of the mosques attacks in Christchurch. "There is a dimming of enlightenment in many parts of the world". She asserted that New Zealand "will not and can not be shaken" by this attack.

Officials said that he had no criminal history in New Zealand or Australia and, as with the other two peolpe detained in connection with the attack, had not drawn the attention of the intelligence community for extremist views.

Aziz said: "He gets into his auto and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window".
