Judge orders suspected New Zealand mosque shooter's face blurred in photos

At least 49 people were killed, while dozens more were injured.

About 41 people were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch at about 1:45 pm [local time], and the rest were killed in a second shooting at the Linwood Masjid Mosque.

Medical staff said 39 wounded people were being treated in hospitals, 11 in critical condition including a four-year-old girl.

Outside the court, the son of 71-year-old Afghan victim Daoud Nabi demanded justice for his late father, who believed New Zealand to be a "slice of paradise".

"About 40 years ago we had an attack in a rural community in Aramoana but that was not, as this was, politically motivated and far fewer people died then". "The people of New Zealand are in our thoughts and prayers".

The Muslim Students' Association has also spoken out about the attack on Facebook.

"As a Member of our Pacific community, we stand with you shoulder to shoulder, heart to heart in this hard time coming to grips with what has happened".

Overwhelming emotional support poured out from New Zealand residents for the victims of the carnage at two mosques in Christchurch.

"Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters in New Zealand - a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking nearly beyond comprehension".

While the mass shooting was meant to sow fear and division, President Gertler said, "we hope that ultimately those responsible will fail, utterly, in their vicious pursuit".

"New Zealand's decision not to register 96% of civilian firearms makes it a standout exception, alone with the United States and Canada", Philip Alpers, an Australian researcher and the founding director of GunPolicy.org, said in a fact sheet.

"An expert testified before parliament in 2016 that it was only a matter of time, before a mass shooting occurred in NZ", he said.

The manifesto also included a single reference to US President Donald Trump in which the author asked and answered the question of whether he was a Trump supporter: "As a symbol of renewed white identity and common objective?"

"I want to reassure all New Zealanders that we are doing absolutely everything in our power to respond to this attack, and deploying all available resources in communities across New Zealand", Bush said. Everyone rushed home, and we locked the doors and it was only when we put on the news we realised exactly how close we were to the shooting.

"They are us", she said.

Other world leaders are joining Ardern in condemning the attacks and offering their condolences to the victims' families.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said the attack brought back memories of 2011, when anti-Muslim extremist Anders Breivik killed 77 at a youth gathering on a Norwegian island: "It shows that extremism is nurtured and that it lives in many places".

The Pacific Music Awards organisation in New Zealand also expressed its shock and solidarity over the shootings.

"We're hoping that wouldn't spread any fear in our youth, in our community", Wahb said.

"Many of those affected may be migrants to New Zealand".

Meanwhile, the final day of the Auckland secondary schools dance festival Polyfest was cancelled following the attacks.

Keats said she helped one of the men take cover behind her vehicle and applied pressure to his wound.
