Defiant shooter charged with murder, flashes white power gesture in court

Horror and sorrow: U of T reacts to attack on Christchurch mosque

A raft of further charges are expected. Flanked by two police officers, he smirked when media persons photographed him during the hearing and was seen making the white power gesture. "Many of the people require multiple trips to the theatre to deal with the complex series of injuries they have", said Christchurch Hospital's Chief of Surgery Greg Robertson. One more died in hospital, where another 48 wounded are still receiving care, two in a critical condition. "I say to them again stay strong".

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, today faced court in New Zealand.

The attack on the Al Noor and Linwood mosques has been labelled terrorism by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and is thought to be the deadliest attack directed against Muslims in the West in modern times.

Friday's mass shooting has renewed calls for a tough crackdown on New Zealand's gun laws in a country where there is one firearm to every four people.

"It's outrageous, the feeling is outrageous", he said.

The victims of Friday's shooting included immigrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

Ardern, wearing a black headscarf, met with survivors and victims' families Saturday at a college which has become an information centre for those affected by the tragedy.

Ms Ardern, who arrived in Christchurch Saturday, said the shooter was not on any watchlist and did not have a criminal record.

"It means a lot".

The attack led to an outpouring of grief and shock that a white-supremacist fanatic could carry out a terrorist attack on such a scale in a country widely regarded as one of the world's most peaceful.

Mass shootings and violent crime are rare in New Zealand, a country of almost 5 million people.

Those views were apparent even among the onlookers gathered at Al Noor Mosque.

California governor to put moratorium on death penalty
An armed California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officer stands guard at San Quentin State Prison's death row. There hasn't been an execution in California since 2006, amid a years-long legal battle over the state's drug cocktail.

"The offender was in possession of a gun licence" obtained in November 2017, and he started purchasing the weapons the following month, she said.

She said Tarrant, who has been arrested and charged with murder and committing a terrorist act, had allegedly used five firearms, including two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm.

"The guns used in this case appear to have been modified".

'I can tell you one thing right now, our gun laws will change, ' Ms Ardern told reporters.

It wasn´t until Yama rewatched the gunman´s video of the rampage - which he streamed on Facebook Live - and saw his father lying dead on his back that he realised his father did not escape.

"The individual charged was in custody 36 minutes from receiving the first call", she said.

Commissioner Mike Bush hailed the "absolute bravery" of both police and members of the public "who put themselves in harm's way" to apprehend the suspect.

Another of Daoud´s sons, Yama, was on the way to the mosque - to make up with his father after a small falling out - when he bumped into a friend outside who told him "your father saved my life".

Two men were filmed brandishing what appears to be hammers during a street altercation in London before one jumps on the bonnet of a auto, with broken windows, as it drives off.

Ardern, who flew to Christchurch on Saturday, said she had spoken to Trump, who had asked how he could help.

New South Wales Police also issued a statement assuring Australia's Muslim community that there were no specific threats domestically. "If they are not of our people, but live in our lands, they must be removed".

But for how long must non-white victims be the proverbial canary in the coal mine before Western governments commit to a serious interrogation of how Islamophobia and other forms of racism are being perpetuated?
