40 People Confirmed Dead, 20 Injured After Mass Shootings In New Zealand Mosques by Newsblenda(m): 8:34am On Mar 15, 2019
New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed 40 people have died in today’s shooting, with 20 injured after two shootings breakout in two New Zealand mosques.

Of the confirmed 40 people killed, 30 were killed at Al Noor mosque and 10 killed at Linwood mosque. That 10 figure includes three people who were outside Linwood Avenue mosque at the time.

It all started at 1:40 p.m. on Friday local time in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Armored police were sent to the city center after hearing reports of gunshots in a mosque.

Shooters opened fire for 10 to 15 minutes inside the mosques.



Mohammed was in the mosque when the shooting started. 400 people were gathered for Friday prayer. The shooting started at 1.40pm.

Mohammed heard shooting and screaming and thought something had blown up in the kitchen. Mohammed grabbed his nephew and ran for the back exit. Mohammed’s nephew, aged 33, is still inside, uninjured. He has had no food or water.

“I am happy that I am alive. I am new to New Zealand and at the mosque you find your friends and family. They are after the Muslims. They only see religion.”

Police have given no indication when the remaining people inside the mosque will be released. A small group of Christchurch residents have gathered to support the victims as they wait for their families.

“I am so sorry this happened to you in our country, this should never happened,” one said.

Mohammed says he feels very afraid in New Zealand. “We are not safe anymore, where are we safe now?”

Police have also diffused several improvised bombs around the city found under vehicles.

Hospitals and schools have been placed on lockdown and police have warned people to stay inside until further notice.

Supermarkets have been closed in Christchurch tonight, and services such as Uber have also cancelled operations.

All mosques across the country were asked to lock their doors immediately.

15-year-old schoolgirl Kerry is stuck by the cordon and can’t get home. She is feeling tired, exhausted and hungry.

“I am feeling sad about this, why do people have to do this? We moved here from South Africa to be safer. And stuff like this happens in South Africa.”

“Why does this happen to people innocently praying?” she asks.

Kerry lives behind the mosque. People jumped into her street to escape, running from the bullets. “I am so sorry,” Kerry says to victims waiting for their family. “I am so so sorry.”

What we do know is that there are four in custody at this time. Three men and one woman.

Australia’s prime minister, Scott Morrison, has just confirmed that the shooter who was taken into custody was an “Australian-born citizen”.

He says Australian authorities are now involved in investigations as a result of this.

Everywhere you go you find mosques and the owners are allowed to freely practice their religion but on the other hand, you don't find churches in some countries not because there are no Christians while in a few you find a few Churches yet the religious adherents are severely persecuted. Just asking why?
