Muslims in Germany anxious after New Zealand attacks

New Zealand to revise gun laws after terrorist assault – NZ mosque attacks

"Today was also agreed that there will be an inquiry to look at the specific circumstances leading up to the Christchurch mosques terror attack on March 15". A live-streamed attack by an immigrant-hating white nationalist killed dozens of people Friday as they gathered for weekly prayers in Christchurch.

"The primary aim of the activity is to formally obtain material that may assist New Zealand Police in their ongoing investigation", the agencies said in a joint statement.

Australian Brenton Harris Tarrant, 28, is believed to be the only person responsible for the attacks, though he could have received support from others, the commissioner said.

Gun City owner David Tipple said the alleged gunman bought four weapons and ammunition between December 2017 and March 2018. "The reality is that after one pm on Friday our world changed forever and so will our laws", he said.

"We detected nothing extraordinary about this (gun) license holder", Tipple said, adding he and staff are "dismayed and disgusted" by Friday's shootings.

His store has been criticized, in the wake of the shootings, for leaving out a roadside advertising billboard that shows a parent helping children with rifle target practice.

Ardern said the details are still to be worked out but the changes to the country's firearms laws will be announced in full within 10 days.

Goodale said the killing of 50 people in Christchurch has sparked a global sense of concern that will prompt Canadian politicians to make some timely decisions.

In 2001, the United Nations designated JeM as an organisation that is associated with Osama bin Laden. As a permanent member of the Security Council, China has the authority to veto any measure.

Meanwhile, police in Australia early on March 18 said they had executed two search warrants in towns in the state of New South Wales related to the investigation into the mass shootings.

She also said that while the man charged with carrying out the shootings was not a New Zealand citizen, it could not ignore the problem of white supremacy supporters within the country. Facebook said it blocked the upload of 1.2 million video clips and removed another 300,000 within 24 hours.

New Zealand has a far lower rate of gun homicides than the US, but the deadly mass shooting last week exponentially increased its number of gun fatalities. Islamic tradition calls for bodies to be cleansed and buried as soon as possible after death.

Australian Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said Monday that Tarrant had spent only 45 days in Australia over the past three years and was not on any terror watch lists.

Peters confirmed Tarrant informed him of his intention to represent himself in court where he faces one charge of murder and is widely expected to be charged with more. Elsehwhere in Christchurch, a biker gang paid honor to the victims by performing a rendition of the haka.

Sarah Liddell, 17, said many of her peers felt intense anxiety since the attack.

Authorities say they hope to release all the bodies by Wednesday.

"We are a nation who will never accept acts like this!", said a poster-sized message decorated with hearts attached to the iron fence of the botanic gardens.
