Nearly 50 Killed in New Zealand Mosque Attacks; 4 in Custody
Friday, 15 March 2019 17:27 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Mass shootings at two mosques full of worshippers attending Friday prayers killed 49 people on what the prime minister called œone of New Zealand™s darkest days, as authorities detained four people and defused explosive devices in what appeared to be a carefully planned racist attack.

One man has been charged with murder in the attacks and will appear in court Saturday, police say.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the events in Christchurch represented œan extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence and acknowledged many of those affected may be migrants and refugees. In addition to the dead, she said more than 20 people were seriously wounded.

œIt is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack, Ardern said.

Police took three men and a woman into custody after the shootings, which shocked people across the nation of 5 million people. While there was no reason to believe there were more suspects, Ardern said the national security threat level was being raised to the second-highest level.
