New Zealand Shooting: One of New Zealand’s darkest days
Multiple people have been shot dead at two mosques in New Zealand city of Christchurch during Friday afternoon prayers
There are 4 suspects, 3 male and 1 woman who are taken into custody. Multiple explosive devices have been found attached to cars in the city.
The police commissioner, Mike Bush urged everyone to avoid all mosques across the country. He told residents in Christchurch: “Close your doors until you hear from us again.”
Prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, said it was “One of New Zealand’s darkest days”, calling the attacks “an unprecedented act of violence”.
The attacker is believed to have livestreamed at least one of the attacks. Police have urged people not to share the “distressing” footage.
The city is placed in lockdown, with schools and public buildings closed.
One of the witnesses, Len Peneha said he saw a man dressed in black enter the mosque – believed to have hundreds of people inside – and then heard dozens of shots. He says he also saw a gunman flee before emergency services arrived.
