Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

Trump called the shooting a "horrible, frightful thing", and said he offered support to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, before pivoting to his immigration veto.

About 41 people were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch at about 1:45 pm [local time], and the rest were killed in a second shooting at the Linwood Masjid Mosque.

"What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence".

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", she said.

New Zealand Cricket said they had made a decision to cancel the test, which was scheduled to start at Hagley Oval on Saturday, after discussions with the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

In the video, the killer spends more than two minutes inside the mosque spraying terrified worshippers with gunfire. Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage. One man in his late 20s has been charged with murders.

The gunman targeted the men's prayer room in the mosque and then moved to the women's room.

He said he and others escaped by breaking through a glass door.

Ardern descrived the killings as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

The Australian suspect will appear in court on Saturday morning after being arrested and charged with murder.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said that one of the killers was Australian.

There are now four individuals who have been apprehended, but three are connected to this attack who are now in custody, one of which has publicly stated that they were Australian-born.

The online video footage, which appeared to have been captured on a camera strapped to the gunman's head, showed red petrol canisters in the back of his auto, along with weapons.

Relief groups like the New Zealand Red Cross are already helping the community register missing persons, connect with loved ones, or mark themselves safe.

The survivors included 17 members of Bangladesh's cricket team, whose game against New Zealand on Saturday has been postponed, and a Palestinian man who fled for his life after seeing someone being shot in the head.

Political and Islamic leaders across Asia expressed their disgust at the deadly shooting.

Omar referenced the fact that Friday is the Muslim community's holy day of the week, a day when the faithful attend services at mosques, and said she hopes Muslims will continue to attend the Friday prayer service known as jumah.
