Forty people have been killed and more than 20 seriously wounded in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch.

 

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the incidents as a terrorist attack, and one of the country's "darkest days".

 

Three men and one woman are in custody, police commissioner Mike Bush said, but warned more suspects may be at large.

 

Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison said one of those arrested was an Australian citizen.

 

He described the suspected attacker as an "extremist right-wing violent terrorist".

 

Police emphasise that the situation is still evolving and have not said how many people have been injured or killed.

 

They said they had responded to "a number of IEDs (explosive devices) attached to vehicles, that we also stopped".

 

Authorities have advised all mosques in the city to shut down until further notice, saying this was an unprecedented act of violence.

New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush said the death toll in the two mosque attacks has increased to 49.

 

The vast majority, 41 people, were killed in the attack on the Deans Avenue mosque shooting, Bush said.

 

According to the police, one man has already been charged with murder in the wake of the terrorist attacks.

other news reports are saying 30 injured and 6 dead so far. Also there is a conflicting thing on twitter saying 2 mosques were attacked? I'm super confused right now but I guess we will have everything sorted in a couple hours. I feel so horrible for all the victims and their families. This attack was made during Friday prayers...the most busiest time for a Mosque and the most holiest day of the week for muslims. Sad.

It's all nazi dribble, to be frank. It's nothing out of the ordinary. Just another sad little boy who thinks the world owes him something.

Yep, it's doing the rounds all over here right now. The screenshots are enough, honestly.

 

 

There was another attack at a different mosque, with a bomb being found as well. Everyone is on lockdown.

This is disgusting.

 

They're asking people not to share the video.

Not sure how many of them there are, some reports of a second or third shooter.

Our country has truly lost its innocence today. We’ve never had anything like this and many of us I think have naively believed we never would...
