- AP A woman paying her respects to the victims of the attack at a makeshift memorial near the Masjid Al Noor mosque, Saturday, March 16, 2019, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Vehicles are prohibited, but people can walk closer to the mosques where the shooting happened on Friday.

"I still don't know where he is", she said.

"At just that moment, there was one young guy who usually takes care of the mosque and helps with parking and other stuff, so (the man) saw an opportunity and he pounced over to him and grabbed his gun".

A third man - aged 18 - has also been charged, but is not believed to have been directly involved in the attacks.

Brenton Tarrant, 28, entered no plea when he appeared on Saturday morning in a Christchurch court charged with murder after a terrorist attack on two mosques in the city.

A fourth person was arrested yesterday in the wake of the shootings, but has been released without charge.

Footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" denouncing immigrants as "invaders" was sent to politicians and media outlets and posted online via links to related social media accounts.

Thirty-four people were still in Christchurch Hospital with 12 in critical condition and one child was moved to dedicated children's hospital in Auckland.

"What we have to do is determine the cause of death", Bush said. The kind of leader we need here in America. "So we are doing that as quickly and sensitively as possible".

Meanwhile, outside the court, major roads in the city center are cordoned off with heavy armed police officers on duty.

Judge Paul Kellar said although Tarrant was facing only one murder charge, it was "reasonable to assume there will be other charges".

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinta Ardern, who is expected to address the media again on Sunday in Wellington, held a series of meetings in Christchurch on Saturday to assure the Muslim community their safety was top priority.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, the iconic Empire State building remained in darkness as a mark of respect, whilst hundreds of others attended a vigil held at the NYU Kimmel Centre in NY city.

Ardern called on the USA government to show "sympathy and love for all Muslim communities", and told the press that "the person who has committed this violent act has no place here".

"I have instructed ODESC (Officials Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination) to report to Cabinet on Monday on these events with a view to strengthening our systems on a range of fronts including, but not limited to, firearms, border controls, enhanced information- sharing with Australia, and any practice reinforcement of our watchlist processes".

Within hours of the massacre that killed 50 people, New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, promised to change the country's gun laws, though she didn't immediately specify how.
