Ipswich Mosque to say prayers for New Zealand terrorist attack victims

In addition to the dead, she said more than 20 people were seriously wounded.

"I am deeply saddened by this uncivilized act, which goes against humanistic values and took the lives of civilians", he said in a statement. "Not only the perpetrators, but also politicians & media that fuel the already escalated Islamophobia and hate in the West are equally responsible for this heinous attack", he wrote on Twitter. British Prime Minister Theresa May offered her condolences, and the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said he would increase security at London mosques.

Indonesia's ambassador to New Zealand, Tantowi Yahya, told Reuters inquiries were being made as to whether Indonesians were caught up in the attack.

CNN has not been able to independently confirm any information about any of the attackers and the alleged video at this stage.

"The horrific terrorist attack in Christchurch targeted peacefully praying Muslims - if people are murdered exclusively due to their religion, that is an attack on all of us", he said.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described the gunman, who had Australian citizenship, as an "extremist, right-wing" terrorist.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said some of the victims may have been new immigrants and refugees. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analysis from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

The shooting started at about 1:30 p.m. Friday at the mosques, where hundreds had gathered for prayers. Police said the manifesto contains conspiracy theories and echoes white nationalism seen at protests that resulted in violence in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.

Garneau said he will reverse the ban when he sees the "smoking gun that will explain what happened with this particular flight". The pilot had also reported flight-control problems, an airline representative said Wednesday.

"I could not contact two of my friends who are in the mosque as well", he said. Others described to local television how they heard fellow worshippers crying out for help and saw bullet shells strewn across the floor.

Mr Bush says three men and one woman are in custody over the shootings.

"I can't even imagine what would have happened if they were there five minutes earlier", he said on social media. The singer bellows, "I am the god of hellfire!" and the gunman drives away.

Among those inside the mosque in downtown Christchurch were members of Bangladesh's national cricket team, according to a Bangladeshi journalist, Mohammad Isam. Mosques were advised to shut their doors until further notice.

The shooting at the mosque on Deans Avenue next to Hagely Park, is near to Cathedral Square, where children were taking part in a global protest to raise awareness for climate change. The remaining victim succumbed in hospital.

President Donald Trump tweeted: "We stand in solidarity with New Zealand" and pledged to give the country any assistance it needs. It has an agricultural economy.

Just 1% of New Zealand's population of nearly five million are Muslim, according to government statistics, less than 50,000 people in 2013.

"New Zealand is one of the most peaceful, peace-loving and generous nations in the world". In all, a total of 49 people were killed.

He described Christchurch as a "very peaceful city" that is still getting over the devastating 6.3 magnitude natural disaster that hit in 2011.
