Ardern said New Zealand has suffered an "extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence", lamenting in particular that the violence targeted the country's immigrant population.

Tarrant said in his document he received "little education during my schooling, barely achieving a passing grade", skipping university to work and deal in cryptocurrency, which he said was profitable.

Brenton Tarrant, the prime suspect in the mass shooting at mosques in New Zealand, visited Pakistan as a tourist in October 2018.

At least 49 worshippers were killed on Friday in attacks on the Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and the Linwood Mosque in the city's outer suburb, in what appeared to be the worst attack on Muslims in a western country.

Ardern said some of the guns had been modified to make them deadlier. Now details of his background are emerging, including his upbringing the rural New South Wales town of Grafton which he left shortly after his father Rodney (pictured left with a young Brenton) died of cancer when Brenton was in his early 20s. "This is a very real tragedy with real victims and we strongly encourage people to not share or view the video".

Other weapons and firearms were also retrieved by the police after the attacks on Friday.

"Our prayers with their families". The gunman identified himself as an Australia-born, 28-year-old white male from a low-income, working-class family.

Taliban spokesman Qari Mohammad Yusuf called on the New Zealand government to investigate "the root cause of such terrorism and hand a hefty punishment to the attackers".

Anguished relatives were anxiously waiting for authorities to release the remains of those who were killed in massacres at two mosques.

People across the country were still trying to come to terms with the massacre that Ardern described as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

Parker later told Radio New Zealand that "he did not mean to go further than the prime minister", Radio New Zealand reported. Two lightly armed community police officers brought the atrocity to an end after a terrifying 36 minutes, she said, apparently running the gunman's vehicle to the side of the road.

Mrs Fitzgerald said the family was "gobsmacked" to have learned Tarrant had been charged with murdering Muslims at mosques in Christchurch. A critically injured 4-year-old girl was also brought to Christchurch Hospital then transferred to an Auckland hospital, according to Greg Robertson, chief of surgery at the Christchurch hospital.

"I want to reassure all New Zealanders that we are doing absolutely everything in our power to respond to this attack, and deploying all available resources in communities across New Zealand", Bush said.

The video footage showed a man driving to the mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people inside.

Ardern has said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who legally bought the five guns he used.
