    Thank you. Our hearts are broken over here. We are a peace loving nation and this is a shocking shocking day. We do not need to be pulled into anyone’s debate to try and prove their point one way or the other.

    Please, if you come across the hideous video that the perpetrator filmed, can you please not view it or share it. He wants publicity, let’s not give it to him. Please report it instead so it can be taken down.

    What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence. It has no place in New Zealand. Many of those affected will be members of our migrant communities – New Zealand is their home – they are us.

    Jacinda Ardern‏Verified account @jacindaardern 3h3 hours ago
    The person who has committed this violent act has no place here. To those in Christchurch; I encourage you to stay inside and follow the instructions of @nzpolice. The Police Commissioner will be making a public statement at 5pm. I will update everyone again later this evening.

    Horrifying footage has emerged from inside a Christchurch mosque as a gunman opened fire with a semiautomatic rifle, shooting dozens of people inside at point blank range.

    The distressing 17-minute footage, viewed by news.com.au and verified by Storyful, appeared to be streamed live as it happened from a GoPro attached to the shooter.

    This does not show any shootings. It shows one of the shooters driving to a mosque, exiting his vehicle and removing a weapon.

    This breaking news story reminds me of the Charleston parisher shootings in South Carolina when Dylann Roof opened fire inside a Christian church due to his hatred of blacks and to start a race war. He too was a white supremacist.

    I have no idea why people do things like this, they are not going to achieve anything and their lives are basically over the moment they're caught.

    It is senseless hate filled mass murder and nothing more.

    He wanted fame and you’re giving it to him. You can ultimately make your own choices but I respectfully ask that you don’t share his videos, not matter their content.

    A gunman who livestreamed himself opening fire at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch also posted a 73-page manifesto online addressing his reasons for the attack.

    The 28 year-old man identified himself is from Australia.

    In the manifesto he described himself as “just a regular White man”. He noted he was born “to a working class, low-income family … who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people”.

    He said he carried out the attack to “directly reduce immigration rates to European lands”.

    He described his reasons for the disgusting attack as to “show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands, our homelands are our own and that, as long as a white man still lives, they will NEVER conquer our lands and they will never replace our people”.

    He had been planning an attack for up to two years and only decided on Christchurch three months ago. NZ was not his original choice.

    This article shows the extent of the hate this individual has and it doesn't bear repeating here. He also said he will plead not guilty if he survives and goes to trial.

    Police in New South Wales say there has been no specific threat to any mosque in Sydney or elsewhere in the state. In a statement it added:

    Police have increased patrols and senior officers have also reached out to community and religious leaders across the state to provide support and reassurance.

    NSW Police Force will continue to do everything possible to ensure the safety and security of all members of the community and everyone should continue to go about their business without fear.

    NZ is one of the most peaceful places in the world to live. Kiwi's just don't act like that, the Police don't even carry guns. I am surprised and horrified and hope my son is ok. I used to live in Linwood.
