the. terrorism. clearly what has happened here it is extraordinary. and his behavior on saturday was the least a festivity to people to want to call them. terrorists.
5:01 pm
thousands of children around the world. watching to him. to do global. forty nine people have been killed and dozens wounded twenty of them seriously in twin attacks in the new zealand city of christchurch now those attacks happened at two mosques the first of the nor mosque in the center of this is this is where the majority of the victims lost their lives the second was in the suburb of lynwood where several more fatalities were reported police say
5:02 pm
a man in his late twenty's has been charged with murder and will appear in court on saturday prime minister. has described these events as one of new zealand's darkest days world leaders have joined in condemning the attack on a country wrecked gun violence is rare. in new zealand now a country on edge. a city on lockdown. health officials have activated mass casualty plans. the carnage unfolded at the busiest of times at the biggest mosque in the country worshipers at friday prayers described a man dressed in military fatigues and armed for mass murder and if helmer and he have given the. grace of the military and he's begun. one and. another. and they're here but they what they're doing and not talk me here looking or not the week he. started
5:03 pm
shooting. a second nearby mosque was also attacked it's not clear at the shootings were carried out by the same man the prime minister has called it one of new zealand's darkest days. it is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack. from what we know it does appear to have being well planned two explosive devices attached to suspects of the coast have now been found and they have been disarmed. a driver filmed the moment police caught the man believed to be the terror suspect his car forced off the ruled wheel still spending he has been identified as an australian citizen with a trail of far right extremist views police say they are still determining if anyone else was involved. three other people were
5:04 pm
apprehended we believe one of those persons. who was armed and was at the same my have had nothing to do with this incident. and the two other people that have been apprehended began a position of foreigners in the general we are working through to understand. the. elsewhere a grieving community grapples with its own sounds for answers. you don't think something like this could happen in new zealand well in christchurch of all places where such a small community was so kind and loving so i just don't understand why someone would hurt us like this and in such a way. that we are just like an animal like why would you treat us like that we we've done nothing and i'm some really stupid for not just a huge loss of life today i don't know if i'm going to be feeling side by myself or in my head stuff and i've never felt that way before. but a sense that things may never be the same again. the court will describe your time
5:05 pm
as a present it in new zealand history. asked people not to spread footage of the shooting online. we have undoubtedly experienced an attempted eye that is unprecedented and like anything that we have experienced before but as i say you see and has been chosen because we are not a place we're violent extremism exists we reject ours and our sins and we must continue to reject them this is not an enclave for that kind of behavior for that kind of ideology we will and must reject it this is a place where people should feel secure and will feel secure i am not going to let this change new zealand's profile none of us should we should all be condemning obviously what has happened here today in the peaceful nation of new zealand and what all of us can at least it was ensure that we do not shoot here sprayed or
5:06 pm
actively engage in that message of hate we have been given assurance that online. platforms we're some of those images have been sheed are actively being remote but i just ask people don't shoot them. new zealand prime minister just a rough elbow song is an expert on terrorism and crisis management the german institute for international and security affairs here in brother welcome to d w what are we learning about this the main suspect branson towns well we don't have any independent information yet on who this person is self described he is working man an australian who didn't go to university and describes himself as an average person who just believes in racist white supremacist ideas and thought he had to take action so unfortunately i can't provide you with any other further information now and this is actually also i think responsible to wait because as we heard from
5:07 pm
the police there may be also another person potentially involved in talk of some sort of money fester that he didn't publish what have you heard about well this is true he would underline what was just said about spreading material i'm thank goodness this isn't available that easy anymore but yes there is a seventy page something manifest the where he sets out his world view was actually quite savvy trying to speak to different audiences sort of anticipating a lot of questions of what would be asked about his motives and basically he espouses this idea that there is a great replacement of the white population has to defend itself against other races other immigrants that have a higher birth rate that's essential motivation according to this manifesto that there is a similarity here between between this attack and new zealand the vitex some years ago perpetrated by hundreds break in in no way you have countries where renowned for being quite peaceful that are suddenly rent by this sort of violent extremism
5:08 pm
can one country learn from another well if we can learn something from no way then we need to maintain an open and free society because no we actually reacted very stately i mean everybody was shocked and there was. a great deal of mourning but there wasn't a rush to sort of increase this surveillance or it sort of have any kind of further security measures in place i mean the first responders had to upgrade their their game but beyond that i think the liberal defend the liberal order of no way was upheld and i think he was even should do the same the perpetrator just apparently chose new zealand because a was accessible and b. apparently because the church was previously a church it was reconvene repurpose into a mosque and that was something he saw as a symbolic target beyond that i don't think there was a reason why new zealand was attacked is it's interesting you're make the point about norway we heard from madison and they're saying that that new zealand will
5:09 pm
not be changed by this attack but countries certainly here in europe where these attacks have happened you see a much greater. police presence you see suspicion on the streets but that didn't happen in no way not in the sense that there was. a presence on the street with armed guards or that there was a push for met more intelligence surveillance but this is not to say there are things to be done and i think in particular in this instance this will renew the debate about the responsibility or the possible role of platforms where this kind of information is shared the attackers lifestream this was a unfortunately a new thing and i fear this may be not the last time so that's a debate we have to have but that doesn't mean that we should step back from a free and open society where we roundly condemn all sorts of racism and this extreme islam and debate is that more platforms like facebook i can or should do
5:10 pm
when events like this live streamed in this way it's not something that can be a house very quickly i mean the european union for example is at the moment considering a law to force platforms to take down content within an hour if it's being declared terrorists and then otherwise they would incur heavy fines and that does. potentially makes sense in the context like this bottle on the other hand of course that raises again the question is that realistic isn't that already out when it's out and then it's shared anyway what was the risk of censorship so that debate is not at the end yet but i think we still are in the process of finding balance these platforms moving in early and i think that's certainly something that needs to be done also in the process of radicalisation but also not going so far to say we have to take out everything the minute it appears we talk to you thanks for joining us. from the your german institute for international and security affairs thank you well german chancellor angela merkel is one of many world leaders extending their
5:11 pm
best sympathies to are victims and their families. here may have this is a horrific attack on people as they prayed and on their house of worship. this is an attack directed against muslims. it is also my attack on new zealand's democracy and on an open and tolerant society. and we share these values with new zealand. and we share their horror and condemnation of this terrible attack. talk. among the reaction from other world leaders is this tweet from french president emmanuel macro he says all our thoughts are with the victims of these heinous crimes against the mosques in christchurch in new zealand and that loved ones france stands up against all forms of extremism and works with its partners against terrorism across the world pakistan's prime minister imran khan has also expressed shock and tweeting that he strongly condemns the terrorist attack this reaffirms he
5:12 pm
says what we have always maintained that terrorism does not have a religion press go to the victims and their families. bangladesh's national cricket team was amongst the people caught up in the attacks the players were in christchurch for a much against new zealand other team officials were visiting one of the mosques when they were told there was a shooting going on inside this video shows them escaping the scene one of the team described the experience as frightening. doubly reporter friendly has been following that story while come to the studio what more can you tell us well what we know is that the team were on a tour in new zealand and they had been preparing and practicing for the final match against a cricket team in new zealand and so this is a video showing one of their practices and screen and fact the cricket ground where they have their training is very close to the mosque almost where the first shooting happened it was just
5:13 pm
a few hundred meters away from that and so this morning they were on their way to the mosque for friday prayers and so when they almost arrived they heard the shooting and at this he manages it was just like they were just about fifty meters actually away from the mosque so it was a very narrow escape for them and after that they returned to the hotel the managers that they were safe and sound but that they would travel home in the coming days and what sort of responsibility from the two well the members were of course deeply shocked and some of them described their all of you on twitter one of the coaching staffs that they just expat active shooters and that his heart beats pumping were pumping badly and there were panic everywhere whereas the cool him the captain of the team sat a lost safe them today wired to shooting in the mosque they were extremely lucky and that he never wants to see things like this happen again and then another team member. concept the entire team got saved from active shooters and it was
5:14 pm
a frightening experience for him and he asked for prayers so they are shocked but yeah but. safe we can say that and the match which was supposed to happen on saturday morning has been canceled good to talk to you thanks for that hunch friendly thank you. let's move on now and look at some of the other stories making news around the world how dearly has the most protest against long time the president of dallas is beautifully despite the eighty two year old's decision not to seek a fifth term demonstrators believe he is still no longer fit to lead the country is ready see in public since suffering a stroke in twenty thirty. powerful tropical storm has made landfall in mozambique battering a coastal city with heavy rain and winds of up to one hundred seventy kilometers not local media site least one person has been killed in the city of buildings have been damaged trees blown over and power lines down. vest greatest
