New Zealand PM Vows Reforms, Says Mosque Attacker Had Gun Licence

Two Muslim organizations in the Chicago area said they were stepping up patrols and other security measures Friday after a mass shooting at two mosques in New Zealand killed at least 49 people and wounded dozens more, but Chicago police said they were not aware of any local threats.

"I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11", Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan posted on social media.

Ardern said that New Zealand does not condone racism and is not an enclave for extremism.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims says in a statement that after the attacks in Christchurch and the Quebec City mosque shooting that killed six people during prayers in 2017, Muslims feel vulnerable and unsafe and that it is "essential" that political leaders call the attacks for what they are: Islamophobic terrorism.

New Zealand's Police Commissioner Mike Bush said a number of IEDs that were attached to vehicles were found and made safe by their defence force.

In spite of this, a cult of personality has grown around Kjellberg, as evidenced by the "subscribe to Pewdiepie" meme evoked by the gunman, in which fans encourage people to subscribe to Kjellberg's channel so that he remains the most-followed person on YouTube.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised by the accused gunman in a manifesto posted online as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

Police later said one of the arrests didn't relate to the shootings. "It has no place in New Zealand", Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern tweeted.

Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice
The Red Notice was issued on March 1 upon Turkey's request, local NTV channel quoted Turkish Justice Ministry officials as saying.


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.

New Zealand, with 5 million people, has relatively loose gun laws but few gun homicides.

Christchurch, a relatively small city on New Zealand's south island, hit global headlines in 2011 when it was struck by a deadly natural disaster, killing more than 180 people.

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.

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

"Today we stand with the people of Christchurch, New Zealand".

Christchurch was the home of these victims.
