New Zealand Prime Minister provides shooting update: New Zealand's Prime Minister gives an update…

Shootings at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on Friday resulted in at least 49 fatalities and the detention of three armed suspects, one charged with murder, in what Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called a terrorist attack.

As news of the tragedy broke, video also surfaced on social media of a gunman opening fire inside one of the mosques.

Authorities say the planned attacks happened at two mosques in the city. Police also defused explosive devices found in a car. More than 45 people were being treated for gunshot injuries at a nearby hospital.

A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a manifesto, saying he was a racist who had been planning the attack for two years.

    To anyone who looks through these comments and finds hatred: Remember, they are the minority. The majority of us are with you, all empathizing with you. The people who say they deserved it, or the people who think it was necessary are simply pathetic, and feel the need to display power over others to fill their emptiness. I hope things get better.

    Islam is EVIL, & Shooter is too,.. Im sorry to families and people killed.. Islam4u –> "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya(non-Muslim tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

    Muslims wants to kill me because I left Islam, Because Prophet Muhammads commands them to. –>Narrated 'Ikrima: Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle(Muhammad), 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

    The Left and Islam, Blame white republicans, “far right” as a cause for this? @ABC news as well.. Quran look–>And the Jews say: The hand of Allah is tied up! Their hands shall be shackled and they shall be cursed for what they say. Nay, both His hands are spread out, He expends as He pleases; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord will certainly make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; and We have put enmity and hatred among them till the day of resurrection; whenever they kindle a fire for war Allah puts it out, and they strive to make mischief in the land; and Allah does not love the mischief-makers.

    Confirmed that the shooter was a Muslim extremist. The mosque was collaborating with Christian's in a type of truce community for tolerance, however this Muslim extremist was against it and carried out this act of terror. He also had a bomb still in his vehicle. There are now interviews with the survivors on this right now, go check it out.

    don't fuckin change gun laws but rather change or stop propaganda against Islam and learn the difference between Islam as a religion and terrorists group who have nothing to do with their religion,educating the sick mind of people is more effective than stupid gun laws.

    Why is Islam Evil, like the shooter who hurt innocent people??? The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!
    or "the law that no Muslim should be killed in Qisas (equality in punishment) for the killing of (a disbeliever).”  
    Sahih Bukhari 1:3:111. or It has been narrated by 'Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.
    Sahih Muslim 19:4366

    It’s absolutely terrible to see innocent people going about their lives hurting no one and yet they are considered a great threat for their beliefs. I feel for their children and families today. With this and previous terrorist acts committed because people have a different belief in religion, it’s just matter of time now Islamic terrorist will take advantage of this and use it as propaganda and retaliate. And because of this terrorist, more innocent people will die and further continue the hate and the division. I pray that no more innocent lives are taken away, but unfortunately it’s just a matter of time before retaliation happens. It’s a sad terrible world we live in. It’ll never stop because humans have the emotions of hate and has been that way since the beginning of the human race.
