At least 49 people have been killed in terror shootings at two New Zealand mosques in Christchurch. Three men and one woman have been taken into custody.
CNN reports: ‘Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that at least one of those taken into custody is Australian. He said the shooting was the work of a “extremist right wing, violent terrorist” at a press conference Friday…..Authorities said they “will not be discussing the offenders’ possible motivations or the causes of this incident” at this stage.However, in a social media post just before the attack, an account that is believed to belong to one of the attackers posted a link to an 87-page manifesto that was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack. The manifesto was not signed.In addition, police are aware of a video shared online and broadcast live during the attack, which purports to show a gunman walking into an unnamed mosque and opening fire.’
