MOSQUE MASSACRE: 49 Dead in New Zealand

Written by on March 15, 2019

At least 49 people are dead and 20 seriously injured after shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Police have arrested three men and one woman. Murder charges have already been filed against one man described as a 28-year-old Australian. One of the attackers, who live-streamed the gruesome attack, is said to have a social media account including a link to an 87-page manifesto consisting of anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the attacks terrorism and said they appeared to be carefully planned. (NBC News)
