49 dead in New Zealand mosque shootings
New Zealand Police speak with witnesses following a shooting at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Christchurch. Forty people have been confirmed dead after shootings at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday. Three suspects – including at least one Australian – are in custody and multiple explosive devices have been found attached to cars in the city. At least one of the shootings appears to be have been streamed live on Facebook, and a video purporting to show the shooting began circulating on social media immediately after the attack. It shows what appears to be the shooter driving towards the mosque before beginning his rampage. The 16-minute video shows the man driving towards the mosque with several high-powered rifles scrawled with messages beside him on the passenger seat of his silver Subaru. As he approaches the entrance of the mosque, he indiscriminately begins firing on people inside. After several minutes, he leaves, randomly shooting at people on the street through the windscreen of his car. Police have urged people not to share the “distressing” footage, but witness accounts from the attack paint a chilling picture of events inside the packed mosque. Photo credit: David Alexander/AAP
