About 20 others have been left seriously injured after a gunman opened fire at two mosques in the city of Christchurch. The attacker appeared to have live-streamed parts of the mass shooting inside the Masjid Al Noor Mosque as worshippers went to pray. When the death toll stood at 40 before rising, it is believed at least 30 people were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch.

Seven more people were killed inside the suburban Linwood Masjid Mosque, and three died outside the same mosque.

It is not yet known exactly where the other nine individuals were killed.

Officers responded to the sickening attack after reports of shots fired in central Christchurch at about 1.40pm (12.40am GMT).

The disturbing footage has since emerged online with users urged not to share “white supremacist’s joy”.

Mr Morgan wrote on Twitter: “Don’t share that despicable video. Don’t RT it if you see it.

“Don’t be complicit in spreading that white supremacist’s joy as he murders innocent people. #Christchurch.”

New Zealand Police also urged people not to share the ”extremely distressing footage”.

A spokesman added: “It’s very disturbing, it shouldn’t be in the public domain.”

Meanwhile New Zealand Police commissioner Mike Bush confirmed a man in his late 20s has been charged with murder, whilst three others remain in custody.

Mr Bush told reporters in Wellington: “I would like to also add that so far one person, a male in his late 20s, has been charged with murder and should appear in the Christchurch court tomorrow morning.

“Three other people were apprehended. We believe one of those persons, who was armed and was at the scene, may have had nothing to do with this incident.

“And the two other people that have been apprehended, again in possession of firearms in the general environment, we are working through to understand what their involvement is.

“We have recovered a number of firearms from both of the scenes.”

Mr Bush said the attack was a “very well-planned event”.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called it one of New Zealand’s “darkest days”

Ms Arden added: “What has happened here is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.”
