New Zealand shooting: Teacher who tried to take weapon from gunman dies

Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

Before Friday's attack, New Zealand's deadliest shooting in modern history took place in 1990 in the small town of Aramoana, where a gunman killed 13 people following a dispute with a neighbor.

Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, has been charged following the attacks.

She pronounced it "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

President Donald Trump, who has a record of Islamophobic rhetoric, online behavior and policies, tweeted out his "warmest sympathy and best wishes" to the people of New Zealand.

"We will find a time and a place for us to come together and to share that sense of grief and loss, but also that sense of love and compassion and support".

"I was really lucky", Nour Travis, who was on the scene at Al Noor told New Zealand radio station NewsTalk ZB.

Emergency services struggled to deal with the sheer number of victims. "He loves New Zealand".

"My children live here" he said, adding, "we are happy".

The audio recording of Ardern's press conference was published by New Zealand Herald.

In the 74-page screed, he says he first began considering an attack in April and May of 2017 while travelling in France and elsewhere in Western Europe. In a comparison to other 177 countries in 2007 that looked at the rate of private gun ownership, New Zealand ranked 22nd.

Yama Nabi said his father Haji Daoud, who came to New Zealand from Afghanistan in 1977, was killed at the Al Noor mosque. For many this may have not been the place they were born.

Australian lawmaker blames mosque slaughter on 'increasing Muslim presence'
He went on to claim the real cause of the bloodshed that's left at least 49 people dead is New Zealand's immigration policy. Prime Minister Scott Morrison earlier hit out at the independent senator's comments in a tweet on Friday.

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".

He said his government expressed compassion and solidarity over this "despicable act affecting our neighbours". He also referred to the right to bear arms as laid out in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and claimed that attempts to take away guns in the U.S. will lead to a civil war.

Tarrant is expected to face additional charges and two others are in custody. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We pray for all New Zealanders and our muslim brothers and sisters throughout the world".

There was a heavy police presence at the hospital where families of the more than 40 wounded had gathered.

"We are happy and grateful that the police are taking preventative steps, proactively coming forward to help us ... it's more of a reassurance to the community that we're looking forward".

"Any loss of life at the hands of extremists regardless of religion, race or colour should be condemned in the strongest of terms". I feel absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person. "The Muslims have a deep command taught to be intertwined with the whole, so it is sad to see that some people hate us".

Meanwhile, the final day of the Auckland secondary schools dance festival Polyfest was cancelled following the attacks. Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population.

"They [cancelled it] for the sake of safety of the students and safety of our community".

But firearms laws are lax compared to neighbouring Australia, which enacted a strict gun control regime in the wake of a similar massacre in 1996, and most other developed nations outside of the United States.

Aupito said festival organisers have contacted schools about the decision.
