Several killed and injured in New Zealand mosque shooting

Several people have been reported killed and many more injured in a shooting incident at two mosques in New Zealand.

A gunman, dressed in a military style kit, live streamed the shooting in one mosque on Facebook.

The shootings took place at two mosques in Christchurch.

New Zealand media reported that forty people have been killed and 48 people hurt after gunmen stormed two Christchurch mosques in the worst terror attack on New Zealand soil.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said 10 people were killed at Linwood Avenue Mosque and 30 at the Deans Ave mosque near Hagley Park. She said a further 20 people were seriously injured, while Christchurch Hospital had confirmed 48 people suffered gunshot wounds.

Ardern said there are currently four individuals who have been apprehended but three are connected to this attack and are currently in custody, one of which has publicly stated that they were Australian born. (Colombo Gazette)
