The camera attached to his head recording the massacre follows the barrel of his weapon, like some macabre video game.

As for the suspects, Ardern said, "these are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand". No images have emerged from the second mosque.

Two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were found in a vehicle and neutralised by the military, while police raided a home in the southern city of Dunedin, where Ms Ardern said the suspect was based.

King Salman described the attack as a "heinous massacre" that "underlines the responsibility of the global community to confront the rhetoric of hatred and terrorism".

"I live in New Zealand because the first time I came here in 2011, I found a place that was heaven on earth and I made a decision to bring my family to live here in peace, away from all the troubles", a Palestinian man said.

The Bangladesh cricket team narrowly avoided being caught up in the shooting while on a bus approaching one of the mosques while in the city for a match, which has since been canceled. She asserted that New Zealand "will not and can not be shaken" by this attack. There have been at least 49 victims who have succumbed to their injuries so far, with 48 others receiving hospital treatment. Eleven people remained in intensive care, hospital authorities said. "If they are not of our people, but live in our lands, they must be removed". "Hi guys how are you".

Three Bangladeshis were among the dead and one was missing, the consulate said.

"This is one of New Zealand's darkest days", she said. In a statement, according to The Associated Press, Facebook New Zealand spokeswoman Mia Garlick said that the company is "also removing any praise or support for the crime and the shooter or shooters as soon as we're aware".

The victims of Friday's shooting included immigrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia. In New Zealand, commentators also anxious that the horror would sow deep divisions in a society that has largely avoided the polarizations that have spread elsewhere. "I'm not sure how to deal with this".

The massacre by at least one gunman during Friday prayers in the city of Christchurch is the country's worst ever mass shooting and was condemned throughout Asia. "I'd like to take him back to Afghanistan, this is his homeland", Omar Nabi said.

In a video thought to be a live-stream, it has been reported that the gunman told people to "subscribe" to PewDiePie, before entering the mosque and opening fire. "She came here for the peace.now she is shocked", he said, adding his mother was too afraid to leave her house.

"We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism, because we are an enclave for extremism", Ardern said during a news conference in Wellington.

For an Islamic funeral burial is traditionally within 24 hours of death.

The shooter, who had a gun license acquired in November 2017, carried out the killings with two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm, Ardern said.

"I can tell you one thing right now - our gun laws will change", she said. As a result of the attack, she has upgraded the country's terror threat level from low to high. All the weapons were legally obtained. "Are there associates in the United States?"

[I came], frankly, to stand with those people who believe that we can not just any longer just talk about Islamophobia and hate.

"My message was sympathy and love for all Muslim communities", she said she told him.

Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonisation of Muslims.
