New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed her office was one of more than 30 recipients of a so-called manifesto written by the accused Christchurch shooter, sent nine minutes before Friday's mosque attacks.

"There were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in, and it absolutely was his intention to continue with this attack", she told a news conference.

Islamic custom dictates that the deceased should be buried within 24 hours, but authorities said the complex investigation into the massacre of 50 worshippers during Friday prayers made a quick process hard.

The suspected attacker, who identifies himself as 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, reportedly acquired a gun license in November 2017.

Aziz, originally from Afghanistan, said he picked up one of the gunman's discarded weapons and threatened the man, who drove off.

The terror attack suspect, who live-streamed for about 17 minutes his rampage through two mosques here, is an Australian-born citizen and is a resident of Dunedin, situated around 360 km south of Christchurch.

"The magnitude of this is the thing that is the most significant issue for people".

Cook Islands prime minister Herny Puna said his country's prayers first and foremost were with the victims of the shooting, "their families, friends and loved ones whe are now faced with the irreconcilable loss of their loved ones".

Of the four people police apprehended on Friday, one was released ― an innocent bystander who "was just trying to get their kids home", Bush said. That makes New Zealand's per capita rate of gun ownership higher than Australia's, but still far below the United States, where there is more than one gun per person.

Still, Muslims were advised to stay away from mosques while the nation's security alert remained at the second-highest level a day after the deadliest shooting in modern New Zealand history.

One person died in Christchurch hospital last night and staff are treating 42 patients, ranging from young children to adults, with gunshot wounds. He said he survived by played dead, but was desperate to know what happened to his friends who were there with him. "He liked to do marriages - he married me and my wife", said Sulaman Abdul, who fled Somalia as a refugee in 1993 for New Zealand.

The shootings have raised new questions about violence being disseminated online.

Facebook said it had removed 1.5 million videos of the attack from the social media platform within 24 hours of the incident. The minimum legal age to own a gun in New Zealand is 16, or 18 for military-style semi-automatic weapons.

The video showed the killer was carrying a shotgun and two fully automatic military assault rifles, with an extra magazine taped to one of the weapons so that he could reload quickly.

New Zealand tightened its gun laws to restrict access to semi-automatic rifles in 1992, two years after a mentally ill man shot dead 13 people in the southern town of Aramoana.
