New Zealand PM vows gun law reform after mosque massacre

New Zealand PM vows gun law reform after mosque massacre

Friday's attack, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern labeled as terrorism, was the worst ever peacetime mass killing in New Zealand.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has promised changes to gun laws in New Zealand in the wake of the attack.

Tarrant was arrested in a auto, which police said was carrying improvised explosive devices, 36 minutes after they were first called.

Authorities said 34 people remain in hospital.

Aziz, originally from Afghanistan, said he picked up one of the gunman's discarded weapons and threatened the man, who drove off.

Police were able to neutralize two devices: an improvised explosive device at one of the mosques and another device found in the suspect's vehicle, which was also rendered safe.

Australian man Brenton Tarrant will be charged and prosecuted in New Zealand over the twin Christchurch mosque terror attacks that have killed 50.

"The magnitude of this is the thing that is the most significant issue for people".

Responding to commentary about police response times to the attacks, Commissioner Bush said: "I can tell you that within six minutes of police being called. police staff were on the scene".

A story of true heroism is emerging from the horrific terror attacks on innocent Muslims in New Zealand.

Syrian refugee Khaled Mustafa, who had arrived in New Zealand with his family just months ago, was amongst those killed on Friday.

"I was one of more than 30 recipients of the manifesto that was mailed out nine minutes before the attack took place", Ms Ardern told reporters on Sunday. All injured are undergoing treatment at Christchurch Hospital. "The reasons of their deaths are known ... why not release those who have been identified", he said.

"That is an area in which I am seeking advice", she said. 41 of the victims were killed at Al Noor mosque on Deans Avenue and seven died at Linwood mosque.

"Within two minutes of receipt it was conveyed directly to parliamentary security".

His relatives in the Australian town of Grafton, in New South Wales, contacted police after learning of the shooting and were helping with the investigation, local authorities said.

Ms Ardern said Facebook's chief operating officer had sent her condolences over the shootings, which were live-streamed on the social media platform.

Brenton Tarrant, 28, used five guns - "two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm", the prime minister said.

There are an estimated 1.5 million firearms in New Zealand, which has a population of only 5 million, but it has had low levels of gun violence. He was hoping semi-automatics were not banned, but he and his shooting friends were buying the weapons, which can cost anything from NZ$600 (US$400) upwards.

"The friendships he made at that time led him to apply for a role in Air New Zealand and make the move to Christchurch".

Arden used some of her strongest language yet about gun control, saying that laws need to change and "they will change".
