is accused of opening fire on worshipers in what has been called one of the country's darkest days forty nine people are now confirmed dead we'll go live to andrew thomas who is in the city of christchurch very shortly first though here's his report the least it was the scene shortly after a gunman opened fire at a mosque in christchurch the worship us some injured themselves surrounded by the bull to use the family members and friends the. as the rush to hospital police were arresting one of the suspects in a busy suburban area in another part of the city they say they disabled one of the two bombs found in the car he was driving. earlier the city's main al nor mosque was targeted during friday prayers by a white man wearing a military style uniform and the camera mounted on his helmet here but. what it
would not talk me here looking or not that we. started shooting and the people of the. issues and the shooting and i mean. that that the good is that you go one by one everybody and some people that the gunman live streamed his attack on facebook as he indiscriminately opened fire on more than two hundred worshippers i was hearing there to a shooting after a shooting of the shooting it went on. six minute or more in they could hear screaming in the crying in. some people in or drop dead shortly after that shooting there was a similar attack on worshippers at lynnwood mosque about ten minutes away police have arrested a number of suspects including an australian born man new zealand's prime minister
said they weren't on security watch list. said new zealand to be the target of what she described as a terrorist attack because it was a diverse nation that welcomed migrants we new zealand we were not to tag it because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. we were not chosen for the sake of violence because we can darn racism because we are and on clay for extremism. we were chosen for the very facts that we are none of these things australia's prime minister is also appalled and shocked we stand here and condemn absolutely the attack that occurred today by an extremist right wing violent terrorist. that is typed in the logs stolen the logs in a vicious murder suspect that has climbed so many new zealand's.
police haven't ruled out the possibility of more suspects being at launch and a warning muslims to stay away from mosques nationwide we have staff around the country ensuring. that everyone is keep safe and that includes. the fairness and special tactics groups right across the country being very vigilant and having a presence around wall of their mosques to ensure nothing but kids the national threat level has been raised from low to high as police politicians on the public come to terms with the worst and most shocking attack they've ever experienced well it's believed the main suspect had travelled to many different countries in the past few years using as prime minister said an investigation has started and whether the suspect and his motives could have been picked up soon. i want to be very clear that all of that our intelligence community and police
a focused on extremism of every kind. given global indicators around file right extremism our intelligence community has been steeping up thier investigations in this area. the individual charged with mood at had not come to the attention of the intelligence community nor the police for extremism. i have asked our agencies this morning two weeks with late on a ceasing with it there was any activity on social media or otherwise that should have triggered a response that is already under way. well andrew thomas is live for us now in christ church it's the morning off to this attack tell us more about the mood there and how people coming to terms with what's happened.
well in a word very somber about this is the atmosphere here the streets a very quiet the prime minister in a press conference about an hour ago now encourage people to stay indoors not everybody is there are some people coming down here you can see there are a growing pile of flowers that people have been bringing in a steady stream every five minutes or so somebody else comes along and lays quietly a bunch of flowers there i'm standing now as close as you can get the normal skates where the place of move people back to about four hundred meters away from that mosque and this is become the focal point for the media and for people to come and lay the tributes and you can probably see behind me as well maybe about showed a three cards with dog windows that are actually from funeral directors and they looked like the sort of because they would be picking up bodies from the most just down the road this is obviously a horrific horrific event and one that a city like christ church has been totally unprepared for this is a quiet city just two hundred thousand people it's hardly any proportion maybe one
percent maybe just over of that population is muslim and the fact that so many people were inside these two mosques for friday prayers when they were attacked means that a real swathe has been cut through the muslim community here in christchurch the migrant community has been particularly buoyantly impacted and the times now obviously lots and lots of people will know people who died and were injured we spoke to the son of one of the victims. we're here to help you this is using the man you know. you know. he's not. you know because he's been here but because it's so common with lakes i think this is what people want to. be like you know like this. that feeling that people want to come out and celebrate what. should be and wald's
before this attack not let this attack really affect the psyche of the country and the people that's an emotion that i've heard expressed time and time again over the course of saturday morning now the center of the press conference just over an hour ago now and she gave us the latest details the good news if you can have good news in a situation like this is that the number of people killed in this attack has not risen overnight friday into saturday it still stands at forty nine. and you i suppose that will now be the inevitable questions about warning signs prior to this attack what is known about the suspect. what is a bit more context in that press conference a little while ago she said that the main suspect that was an australian born man who's traveled widely he was in and out of new zealand over the last few years he was actually living she said in the town of the needham which is about a four hour drive from here and that's where he was known to be over the last few
years but as the say he's been coming in and out of the country now as far as we know the was just one gunman directly involved in this he's actually due in court any moment so we should find out a little more about the charges against him surely three more people were arrested at the scene one of them was arrested for having a firearm it down here they actually found out subsequently that he had heard about the attack had rushed out to try to help the place he's actually been released now but. two others remain in custody and it's not known yet how directly involved in this attack if it's who they were just say new zealand's gun laws will change she said that they've been attempts to make them stricter in the past they hadn't succeeded but because of this they will she was absolutely determined about that the gunman had only weapons two of them semiautomatic guns a shocking amounts of weaponry that went into the mosque and carried out these attacks. she said to the big questions of course aust about why security agencies
hadn't picked up on this man prior to this attack should they have done he had a social media presence should they have known more about him and she said as well this that this gunman streamed his attack law even on social media and those videos still remain on needs and she just said please everybody just don't share them don't share this horrific imagery because that is not what should be out there people should be celebrating those who died not looking at the footage that the government has chosen to put online well we are expecting some developments over the course of saturday as a site the gunman is due to all the man suspected of being a gun and i should say he is due to appear in court at the moment we're told by our a lot of both schools in the legal world here in christchurch he is refusing all legal representation he wants to represent himself which. is perhaps an interesting development he wants to tell people why he did this directly i suppose and then
we'll hear from the hospital in about an hour or so but more than that about the latest on the number of casualties those sorts of details that will emerge from saturday well thank you very much for putting it all into some context for us as well andrew thomas with the latest from christ church. worshippers at the christ church mosque was from several muslim majority countries and the attack has drawn widespread criticism from across the globe in turkey thousands took to the streets there to protest the killings turkish president of type one link the attacks to what he called the rise of islamophobia worldwide he urged western countries to take immediate action a president trump has said he's spoken with a new zealand prime minister to send to our dan in a phone call that the us is prepared to offer any assistance following this attack earlier to the council on american islamic relations told out zero the president needs to condemn the shootings in new zealand as a white supremacist attack the killer of this. tragedy
in new zealand had cited ruffians trump and mr trump should reflect on this very few people on the ward admired him and now the ones who are my own him are the ones who see fewer of the other and he has a role to play in fixing this problem he is not the only one who is responsible for this but being the president of the united states he has a lot of responsibility to reflect on. hundreds of thousands of algerians have been back out on the streets of the capital and also in other cities demanding as an adult as he's beautifully resigned weeks of mass protests have already forced the ailing president to drop his bid for a fifth term in office but he has now also perspire and elections but testers are
also saying that the promise of a new technocratic government isn't enough for them all matheson explains. this is not what the algerian government all president out there as he's but the flicka are hoping for the streets of the capital and other algerian cities once again crammed with protesters demanding that the president steps down immediately as well as other critics who want a complete change of government. both of leka has been in power for twenty years he's been credited with revitalizing algeria's economy and ending fighting with armed groups in the one nine hundred ninety s. which killed tens of thousands but he's now eighty two and his health has been poor especially since suffering a stroke six years ago his critics say he's become little more than a front man for business and military figures who his opponents say really run the country. balling oil prices badly hit
algeria's economy jobs particularly for young people are scarce after four terms of a beautifully presidency someone all jittery and taking their protests on why you want to be free. we need to be me and you will be. the one in film i've known in my life one president. i want change immediate change it's tough for you. to try to calm demonstrations both of flicka says he won't seek a fifth time next month's presidential election has been cancelled but no you didn't has been set former interior minister noted in badly has been appointed as the new prime minister and plans to head a technocrat government should if it was the mix we have seen all parts of algerian society i assure you want again we are already determined our desire is strong and our doors are open to discuss and exchange visions of the good of like
a government says it will heed the protesters demands but demonstrators say that we is a beautiful ally. and the political system has been manipulated to allow the president and his backers to stay in power one step forward would be to reveal now who is. one of the persons who have been removed from his into arised i mean this is brother still running the show. are the security people still running the show or the new prime minister really a person who has authority. the protesters fear the government is saying it will listen but nothing will change you know jeering. potus.
