Mr Bush said four other people arrested during Friday's police operation have either been released or charged with "tangential" offences.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern hugged members of the Muslim community at a refugee centre in Christchurch on Saturday, promising she would ensure freedom of religion for all: "I convey the message of love and support on behalf of New Zealand to all of you", she said.

The prime minister's office verified that it received the manifesto.

Rashid, a resident of Jinnahabad in Abbottabad and a professor in New Zealand, was present at the Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch when a terrorist opened fire at the worshippers. "Two do remain critical, and we also have one child being well looked after at hospital in Christchurch".

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush confirmed two of those in custody were arrested at the scene, and that police were working to establish whether they had had any involvement in the incident.

A senior Government source said it was thought Tarrant, who was not on a "watch list", "transited" through the United Kingdom and stayed "for a few weeks".

She is calling for gun reform in the wake of the killings. One person has been charged with murder while three other people apprehended with firearms are not believed to be involved, they said.

Mosque worker Abdul Aziz risked his own life to challenge the gunman and try to snatch his weapon, according to attack survivor Syed Mazharuddin. "Just helping people is his main thing".

Ardern declined to discuss more details until she'd talked to her Cabinet, the group of top lawmakers that guides policies.

Ardern noted that this individual traveled around the world and spent "sporadic periods of time" in New Zealand . New Zealand has previously tried to change its gun laws, with the most recent attempt coming two years ago.

Images captured by media outlets during that court appearance are being published blurred or pixellated due to an order from the judge who presided over Tarrant's hearing, The New Zealand Herald reports.

Unlike the USA, the right to own a firearm is not enshrined in New Zealand's constitution.

"Any loss of life at the hands of extremists regardless of religion, race or colour should be condemned in the strongest of terms".

The AR-15 was used at Port Arthur, as well as a number of high-profile mass shootings in the United States. But already, the stories of victims from across the Muslim world came into focus.

Once identification is complete the names will be made public, Bush said. He said the Muslim community and a Pakistani association in the city were assisting in arrangements.

"Lilik has been a valued part of our engineering team in Christchurch for 16 years, but he first got to know the team even earlier when he worked with our aircraft engineers in a previous role overseas", Air New Zealand Chief Executive Christopher Luxon said in a statement.

"This act of terror was brought to our shores and rained down upon us".
