Mosque Shooting Suspect Will Face Justice In New Zealand, Prime Minister Says

Ardern did not detail the new gun laws, but has said she supports a ban on automatic weapons following the Christchurch shootings. Two other suspects are in custody.

An advertisement for the Gun City store that has reportedly upset locals is seen on the outskirts of Christchurch on March 18, 2019.

Australian police have searched two homes in towns on the New South Wales (NSW) mid-north coast linked to the investigation into Friday's mass shootings at mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

Aya Al-Umari, whose older brother Hussien Al-Umari died at the Al Noor mosque, said "It's very unsettling not knowing what's going on, if you just let me know - is he still in the mosque?"

New Zealand media outlets Local NZ and NZ Herald have published a list of vigils being held throughout the country this week.

Rebecca Peters: Obviously the motive was the spread of extremist ideology, but it's the availability of assault weapons, weapons that are created to kill a lot of people on a battle field in a war; it's those weapons that allow so many people to be killed or injured in such a short period of time. Leaders have hinted the changes will impact the proliferation and availability of semiautomatic weapons in particular.

Facebook says that since the attack, teams have been also working to remove content in support of the massacre and other hateful posts.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed gun law reforms are coming - announcing on Monday afternoon that the Cabinet had made an "in principle" agreement.

"I strongly believe that the vast majority of gun owners in New Zealand will agree with the sentiment that change needs to occur".

After the break, City were struggling to find a way back into the game and it was after the introduction of Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero from the bench that they started to threaten.

In vowing to tighten gun laws, Ms Ardern has said the attacker used five guns, two of them semi-automatic, which were purchased with an ordinary gun licence and modified. "We are one. They are us", she wrote.

Violent crime is rare in New Zealand and police do not usually carry guns.

Currently, New Zealanders are able to surrender their firearms to police at any time.

The mother and brother of one of the victims, Naeem Rasheed, will leave for New Zealand today.

The country's enquiry into the events now involves staff from the United States FBI, Australian Federal Police and more than 250 officers and staff. So the argument that you could kill someone with other weapons, it's true you can, but it's a lot more hard. He then drove across the city to another mosque and continued the rampage, murdering seven more people. "We are not a country of emotional responses, we are a country with laws [and] what we are doing is legal".

Australia introduced some of the world's toughest gun laws after its worst mass killing, the 1996 Port Arthur massacre in which a lone gunman killed 35 people using a semi-automatic AR-15. But he said New Zealand should only allow its own citizens to buy guns.

"We detected nothing extraordinary about this license holder", Tipple said, referring to the shooter.

He said: 'This is yet another atrocity amongst so many.

The video of the gunman in one of the mosques showed a semi-automatic gun with a large magazine round. It also became much more hard to qualify to own a gun, we also have registration of all types of guns and also you have to provide a reason why you want to buy a gun.

Reigning Super Rugby champions Canterbury Crusaders, who play in Christchurch, said on Monday they would consider changing their name after criticism that it was historically insensitive.
