Ardern called the shooting a terrorist attack and described it as "well-planned". She said four people in police custody held extremist views, but had not been on any police watchlists. One alleged shooter livestreamed part of the attack and posted a manifesto online, suggesting a racially motivated act of terrorism.

In the video, the killer spends more than two minutes inside the mosque spraying terrified worshippers with gunfire.

One man who said he was at the Al Noor mosque told media the gunman was white, blond and wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest.

The gunman targeted the men's prayer room in the mosque and then moved to the women's room. "There were three in the hallway, at the door leading into the mosque, and people inside the mosque", he said.
