'As soon as new Zealanders hear that someone was able to legally acquire, as I'm advised, those weapons and carry out this event, that will raise enormous questions with our gun-laws and that is why we will respond swiftly'. At the time this article was published, more than 7,000 people from around the world contributed. "For people of all religions and of none, a red line has been crossed".

Premier Scott Moe expressed his condolences Friday to the affected families and to, "the Muslim community here in the province that we represent, but also across the nation". The test match they were scheduled to play against New Zealand tomorrow has been called off.

"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". Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called the shooting an "unprecendented attack of violence".

From what we know, it does appear to have been well planned.

Hundreds of angry protesters in Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital, chanted "Allahu akbar!" "And I'm getting sick and exhausted of that particular scenario playing itself out over and over again, where they keep silent when one of their people do something, but when... whenever they're able to gain a sort of political capital for themselves, all of a sudden they're chatty".

New Zealand's national flag is flown at half-staff on a Parliament building in Wellington on Friday, March 15.

There are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand and in fact have no place in the world.

Launch Good, a crowdfunding platform that focuses on the Muslim community, launched a campaign. "This is not who we are".

Goodale said he would be later speaking to his New Zealand counterpart, Minister of Justice Andrew Little, to offer Canada's support and solidarity.

Ibrahim said he managed to escape via the backdoor of the mosque: "Lots of people we were inside and there was a door on the right side for the ladies entrance section".

Jordan's King Abdullah II tweeted that "the heinous massacre against Muslims praying in peace in New Zealand is an appalling terrorist crime".

"While some of our elected leaders sadly choose not to mention "Muslim" or "mosque" while denouncing the Christchurch attacks, the reality is that these horrific shootings and the Quebec City mosque attack on January 29, 2017, have left Canadian Muslim communities - and indeed, Muslims around the world - feeling very vulnerable and unsafe", wrote the Council's executive director Ihsaan Gardee.

Just before the shooter, who reportedly identified himself as 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, opened fire on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, he told viewers on his Facebook Live stream to "subscribe to PewDiePie". Her foreign minister, Heiko Maas, said: "When people are murdered exclusively due to their religion, this is an attack on us all".

Baitul Islam's imam, Muhammed Mirza, told CP24 morning prayers Friday were dedicated to the Christchurch victims and he hoped Canada would not suffer any more violence.

New Zealand has raised its security threat level to the highest.
