New Zealand to tighten gun laws in wake of mosque killings

The prime minister has promised reforms to New Zealand gun laws, which allowed Tarrant to legally purchase the weapons he used in the attack, including semi-automatic rifles.

Mohammad Faisal on Tuesday praised Prime Minister of New Zealand (NZ) Jacinda Ardern in the aftermath of one of the deadliest terror attacks which killed 50 Muslims in two mosques of Christchurch last Friday. "But he will, when I speak, be nameless", said Ardern. She said that the whole country will pay tribute to martyrs with the 2 minute silence.

Asked if she was concerned about a rise of right-wing nationalism in her country, Ardnern told CBS News partner network BBC News that while it was an Australian citizen who committed the atrocity, "that is not to say that we do not have an ideology in New Zealand that would be an affront to the majority of New Zealanders". He is a criminal. And in exchange, the country's prime minister vowed to take away the one thing the gunman so clearly craves: fame.

Islamic law says that people should be buried as soon as possible after death, preferably within 24 hours.

In the United States, a congressional panel said it was asking top executives from U.S. tech firms to explain the proliferation online of the "horrific" video.

Many elements of the Friday shooting - including the shooter's decision to livestream the attacks on social media and his purported release of a document espousing his alleged beliefs, which included white supremacist ideas - suggest that he sought national and worldwide attention for the shooting or wanted to spread his message.

"There's nothing they are offering", the Afghan refugee said outside a family support center.

"Of course, he had no idea of the hate that sat behind the door, but his welcome tells us so much - that he was a member of a faith that welcomed all its members, that showed openness, and care", she told parliament.

"Packed and most of the cheaper ARs sold out", reported one commenter, while another compared the purchases to "the Obama scare" in the USA, where the threat of tighter gun laws led people to buy more weapons while legal.

An Australian white supremacist gunman was charged for the killing.

She confirmed 30 of the 50 bodies of those who died had now been returned to their families.

She said it was everyone's responsibility to fight racism. A 4-year-old girl also remains in a critical condition at a hospital in Auckland after being transferred there on Saturday. But on Tuesday, Ardern expressed frustration that the video remained available online, four days after the attack. They are the publisher.

Sarah Liddell, 17, said many of her peers felt intense anxiety since the attack.

"I will not change my opinion about New Zealand".

"There can not be a case of all profit no responsibility".

The shooter's desire for attention was made clear in a manifesto sent to Ardern's office and others before Friday's massacre and by his livestreamed footage of his attack on the Al Noor mosque.
