- 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. Another seven people were killed at Linwood mosque and one more person died later at Christchurch Hospital.

Tarrant was handcuffed and wearing a white prison jumpsuit when he walked into the courtroom.

Authorities are still identifying victims and have not officially named those who died.

"Freedom has come under attack in New Zealand as peaceful worshippers are targeted in a despicable act of evil".

Former NSW personal trainer Tarrant did not apply for bail when he appeared in court on Saturday and was remanded in custody without plea until April 5.

Facebook said it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced" after being alerted by police.

Pakistan's foreign minister says at least six Pakistanis were killed in the New Zealand mosque shootings.

Huang Yan, the manager of the Christchurch branch of China's Southern Airlines, told Xinhua the mass shooting would bring negative impact on New Zealand tourism as Christchurch has just been recovered from the aftermath of the 2011 deadly quake.

Tarrant has been identified as a suspected white supremacist, based on his social media activity.

Missouri River raises to record flooding at Nebraska City
A flash flood warning issued by the National Weather Service includes Valley, Waterloo and King Lake in Nebraska until 10:15 a.m. The flooding has sparked dozens of road closures and several evacuations in Missouri, Wisconsin and Minnesota as well.

Ansun Zhong, owner of Chong's Chinese restaurant in Christchurch City Central, said the shooting greatly affected people's life in Christchurch.

Although authorities have not released an official list of victims, a list of missing persons has been published on New Zealand's Red Cross website.

The video showed a man driving to the Al Noor mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people with a semi-automatic rifle.

The police initially said that four people had been detained in the wake of the attacks. It was still unclear whether any other shooters were involved in the attacks.

Officers arrested two others following the attacks and are now working to establish whether they had any involvement in the terror attacks against the Muslim community in New Zealand. New Zealand´s prime minister vowed to toughen the country´s gun laws after revealing on March 16 that the man accused of murdering 49 people in two mosques legally purchased the arsenal of firearms used in the massacre. She said she lost five family friends, including a 12-year-old boy, in the attack.

At a Sunday news conference, Arden used some of her strongest language yet about gun control, saying that laws need to change and "they will change". "This is not the New Zealand we know".

Police stand guard at Christchurch Hospital. He says 36 victims remain hospitalized, with two of them in critical condition. Funerals were planned on Saturday for some of the victims, several of whom were born overseas.

While the main court proceedings will take place in New Zealand, there will be an investigation into Tarrant's background in Australia, according to Prime Minister Morrison.

The President of French Polynesia, Edouard Fritch sent a message of support to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, following the attack in Christchurch. Stressing that India strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, PM Modi said, "Hatred and violence have no place in diverse and democratic societies".
