What we know so far about the Christchurch mosque attack suspect

New Zealand mosque shooting: At least 49 killed after gunmen open fire

Two other people arrested are yet to be charged.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA/CBS) - The Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety says there will be increased patrols at local mosques in response to the shootings in New Zealand.

The manifesto also included a single reference to US President Donald Trump in which the author asked and answered the question of whether he was a Trump supporter: "As a symbol of renewed white identity and common objective?"

Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population, a 2013 census showed, most of whom were born overseas.

New Zealand's prime minister Jacinda Ardern held press conferences following the attack on mosques in Christchurch that left 49 people dead. Police found multiple explosive devices in vehicles stopped as the shootings unfolded; the devices have since been defused.

Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, was later detained by police.

The court appearance lasted only about a minute and he was led back out in handcuffs.

Taliban spokesman Qari Mohammad Yusuf called on the New Zealand government to investigate "the root cause of such terrorism and hand a hefty punishment to the attackers".

Communities across the globe are paying their respects to those who lost their lives in Friday's terror attacks in New Zealand.

Prime Minister Ardern called the shooting a "terrorist attack", and authorities advised all mosques in Christchurch to shut down until further notice. "I join people across Ontario and Canada and stand with all legislators at Queen's Park in condemning this hatred and violence towards our Muslim brothers and sisters".

The prime minister noted that it appeared the attacks appeared to have been well planned.

The attack has been condemned across the globe, with leaders from Pakistan, Turkey, Britain, Germany, Israel, Jordan, Japan and the European Union sending their condolences and offering support to New Zealand.

The Los Angeles Police Department posted to Twitter that while it had no indication that any related attacks would be carried out in the city, it would increase patrolling around L.A. mosques "out of an abundance of caution".

In York Region, police assigned their helicopter, Air2, to patrol over Baitul Islam Mosque on Jane Street in Maple.

"What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence".

"Please pray for me and for my daughter".

"With these tragic events we want to assure our community that we're out there and we are taking note of what took place".

Radio New Zealand said an eyewitness saw a man wearing a helmet and glasses and a military style jacket open fire inside one of the mosques.

Launch Good, a crowdfunding platform that focuses on the Muslim community, launched a campaign.

The MCC said it had contacted the police in Chicago, Morton Grove and Skokie and asked for extra patrols as well.
