Definitely a dark day in New Zealand today. The terrorist hits New Zealand with brutal mass shootings in parts of Christchurch. Terrorists attack at two mosques in Christchurch and Canterbury Area. The death toll in mosque terror attacks has risen to 49. Whereas 48 people got serious injuries including children.
A 28-year-old Australian who live-streamed himself attacking a mosque identified himself online before the rampage as Brenton Tarrant. The police have urged people not to share his distressing video. A survivor named Ahmed Al-Mahmoud told the media about the incident, he said, a gunman started shooting inside the Al Noor Mosque on Dean’s Rd on March 15, 2019, in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Tarrant told that his motive was “to create an atmosphere of fear” and to “incite violence” against Muslims. He also cited actions of other rightwing extremists including the Finsbury Park mosque attacker Darren Osborne and Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Behring Brevik.
