New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern speaks to media following the Christchurch mosque shooting.
“Many of those who will have been directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand, they may even be refugees here. They have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home. They are us.
The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not. They have no place in New Zealand. There is no place in New Zealand for such acts of extreme and unprecedented violence, which it is clear this act was,” Arden said.
Absolutely at a loss for words. A short while ago, a terrorist attack on a mosque in New Zealand (the ironically named city of Christchurch) were worshippers were mowed down by a high powered rifle at 1:40pm Friday (Jumuah time?)
The killer filmed the whole thing himself in a first person perspective like those video games.
The most horrifying video I have ever seen. I cannot repost it. People are shot point blank with a rain of bullets.
He goes back to his trunk and switches rifles and continues. He did so several times.
His rifles are scribbled with hand written messages.
New Zealand – and the Western world where the irresponsible narratives of Islamophobia have been on a rise – must have a formidable response to this travesty that leaves no stone unturned.
This is a developing story. Prayers for the deceased and their families.
