New Zealand PM Says Cabinet Has Agreed to Gun Law Reform

Police Provide An Update In The Christchurch Shooting

Australian counter-terrorism police on Monday searched two homes linked to the family members of the gunman accused of killing 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch to obtain material that may assist New Zealand Police in their investigation into the terror attack.

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday.

He did not request bail and was remanded in custody until an April 5 court appearance.

Schools and businesses reopened in Christchurch on Monday as New Zealand continues to grapple with attacks on two mosques that left at least 50 people dead.

Facebook would also remove edited versions of the video "that do not show graphic content", Garlick said. Islamic tradition calls for bodies to be cleansed and buried as soon as possible after death, usually within 24 hours.

She joined hundreds of other mourners for a memorial, paying tributes to those killed in the shocking terror attack.

However, Tipple says he is acting to change the retailer's advertising showing children.

Tipple said he supported Ardern's decision to reform gun laws as the Christchurch shootings had raised legitimate concerns.

Police rammed the suspect's vehicle and arrested him as he drove away from the second mosque in the suburb of Linwood.

The retail owner said he did not feel responsible for the shootings.

Staff are seen in a hospital in Christchurch, New Zealand March 18, 2019.

She and Prince William were at a St Patrick's Day event on Sunday when the couple were each handed a pint of the Irish brew. She paired it with a matching floral fascinator and green tourmaline and amethyst oval drop earrings by Kiki McDonough.

"The magnitude of this is the thing that is the most significant issue for people".

Six disaster victim identification staff from Australia were now in Christchurch and actively involved in the hard process. He asked to be identified by just one name.

Tarrant was able to enter New Zealand without a visa and had been visiting 'sporadically, ' but it is unclear how long he had been living in the country.

The nationalities of the victims included Indian, Pakistani, Malaysian, Indonesian, Egyptian, Bangladeshi, Saudi, Somalian and Turkish, authorities said. While the woman has been released, the man has been charged with illegal actions associated with firearms.

Ardern labelled the incident a "terrorist attack" that threatened New Zealand's security. She said her office sent it to parliamentary security two minutes after getting it.

In an interview with Nine News, Tarrant's family expressed shock and apologised for his role in the shooting.

Ardern told the briefing that she had been contacted by Facebook operations chief Sheryl Sandberg who had acknowledged what had happened.

Deputy Police Commissioner Wally Haumaha said the first body was approved for release on Sunday night, but the family was yet to take the body because another relative was also killed and they wanted to collect them together.

The site said that it would halt the sale of semi-automatic weapons while it waited "for more clarity from the government". Last year, such weapons re-entered public debate: similar to the conflict over bump stocks in America, police in New Zealand pushed for tighter regulations of aftermarket accessories and high-capacity magazines that can turn guns into semi-automatic assault weapons.

At present, anyone over the age of 16 and considered to be "fit and proper to possess firearms" can get a general A-category licence in New Zealand.
