2:00 am
stay connected while you move with the best wifi experience and two-hour appointment windows. click, call or visit a store today. i'm george howell at the cnn center in atlanta. we continue our breaking news coverage. welcome to viewers here in the united states and around the world. >> and i am ivan watson broadcasting from christ's church, new zealand, with our continuing special coverage of the aftermath of the deadly terrorist attacks here in this city. george. >> ivan, thank you so much. i first want to recap our viewers on the very latest of what we know following these terrorist attacks that have left so many in new zealand in the
2:01 am
grips of shock and horror. at least 49 people are dead and dozens more wounded and at last check 39 people remain in hospital. 11 of those in intensive care. the wounded range in age of two-years-old to some in their 60s. as for the man suspectled of attacking these worshippers. he appeared in court saturday there. brendan tarrant smirked as he was filed with murder. tarrant will remain behind bars until his next court appearance. police are trying to determine if they were directly involved in the massacre. also, here in this video, you see the moment the suspect was taken into custody. police say tarrant resisted arrest, that he also had explosives in his vehicle and that officers put themselves in great danger in keeping the community safe. the prime minister of new zealand gave more details about
2:02 am
that arrest. >> i want to acknowledge profusely the police responded immediately to the call that they received relating to the attack. the individual charged was in custody 36 minutes from receiving the first call. the offender was mobile. there were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in and it absolutely was his intention to continue with his attack. >> we are also learning a bit more about some of the victims. the jordanian foreign ministry says at least three of its ministry were killed and four others wound. a 5-year-old jordanian girl was critically injured and has undergone surgery.
2:03 am
and one was an asylum seeker. he was apparently running ten minutes late for service and the attack was going on when he arrived at the mosque. cnn is live in new zealand. our senior international correspondent ivan watson again leading our coverage outside the hospital there in christ's church, ivan. >> reporter: thank you, job. it is just after 10:00 p.m. here in christ's church. now, the authorities were urging residents of this city to stay indoors as of this morning as an extra security precaution. they've extended that to mosques across the country, urging them to stay closed for fear they could be targeted as well, as a first time visitor to this city, it is a relatively small city, a population under 400,000. the streets seem to be fairly quiet and it is eerie considering some of the eyewitness accounts of some of them seeing the actual gunman in the street with his weapons.
2:04 am
it is eerie to imagine him in the streets of the city operating so openly and potentially taking so many lives. many more wounded, some of them fighting for their lives in christ's church hospital. in the minutes and hours after the attack first took place, the new zealand police were issuing messages to the community tryings to protect people and assure them they are working on trying to catch any of the suspected terrorists behind this attack. take a listen. >> as a muslim and as a leader in the new zealand place, i am horrified about the events that unfolded in christ's church yesterday. i want our muslim and cross church community and brothers and sisters to know we share your grief and we are here to
2:05 am
continue to support you throughout this heart breaking time. >> reporter: now, there have been condemnations pouring in from around the world about these deadly terrorist attacks and as well as expressions of sympathy for the many victims. the growing list of victims, in fact. joining me now from the united kingdom is the national counsellor from the muslim council of britain and the co-chair of stand up to racism. so a question to you now, these attacks were carried out in two mosque, two places of worship during muslim, friday muslim prayers. by some accounts, a gunman opening fire on worshipers as they were quite literally kneeling in prayer. it must be an absolute nightmare to fellow muslims around the world.
2:06 am
your thoughts. >> absolutely. i mean, this terrorist attack would shock anybody, a pre-meditated planned attack aimed at people when they would be engaged into devotion to our god. for ittotake placeinnew zealand makes it all the more worse, because when you think of new zealand, you do not think of a country where something like this could ever happen. but some will say that it wasn't entirely surprising. the place may be, the timing may be but there has been a growing empty muslim sentiment in many countries in the western world and the attacker made it known as to what his motives were and why he targeted these people. >> and you are referring to this key suspect brendan tarrant, a 28-year-old australian. he was arrested on friday, brought to a court here in christ's church on saturday and
2:07 am
charged with murder. he has been linked to some extremist right wing commentaries, a rambling manifesto that did seem to espouse islamophobia. so a question to you, sir, do you see islamophobia, do you see this kind of ideology growing in the united kingdom, in other countries? >> yes, well, absolutely. i think throughout the western world, we have seen a rise of anti-muslim hatred and islamophobia. this is not about ideas and ideals of islam. they seem to see them as the other, not belonging to these societies and so when you look at the popular narrative, even we can among some main stream politicians, we see most muslims are spoken of as the other, the people that needs to be contained thai their freedoms
2:08 am
carteled in many respects. so the question we need to ask is when are we going to take any kind of singling of any people, in this case muslims, when any group of people is spoken as the other, in a delegatory or in a manner and simply because of who they are. not because of the ideas and ideals, but simply because of their faith or their race or because of their sexual orientation, whenever a group of people are marginalized or spoken in delegatory terms, we have to take them head on. for two long when it came to muslims, we did not see that happen. >> and what measures would you like people to take who may be deeply disturbedab about this attack to challenge the kind of ideology that may have, in fact, inspired it? >> i think muslims around the
2:09 am
world, muslims in the uk for example will be anxious for seeing what happened in christ's church. because the views espoused is not uncommon. a significant have a minority. there are a number that esuppose this in the uk. i am looking to see governments, society and main stream politicians taking concrete steps to reassure muslim community and other community that find themselves in those positions. so to give you an example, i would have expected the british prime minister, for example to visit a place of worship or muslim institution to show our solidarity, which hasn't happened. in the same way, i would want to see that in a government taking more drastic measures. so, for example, in this case, the suspect was not known to the police before, was not really weak in the radar, the security services. but i think that's not because he had no previous trouble.
2:10 am
it's simply because the views he esupposed for too long were not taken seriously and were not seen as a threat. i think it is about time that governments around the world, especially in the western world, start taking ain't muslim far more seriously and as a genuine threat. >> all right. thank you for speaking to us live from the uk. thank you very much for your insight there. and i do have to say that one of the precautions that the new zealand police have issued was from mosques to close their doors in the wake of friday's deadly attacks here in new zealand again to protect them in case they could once again be targeted and we've seen in the local media here in new zealand that churches, for example, some churches have opened their doors to muslims and members of other faiths offering people a place for worship and contemplation in the wake of these deadly
2:11 am
terrorist attacks. turning back to my colleague george howell. keeping in mind, social media was certainly a part of the attack in christ's church before even during the mass shooting. so what can and can't be done to keep hate off those social networks? we'll look into that for you. also the singing, the prayers and the many tears. our coverage continues from new zealand right after the break. about 50% of people with evesevere asthma k? have too many cells called eosinophils in their lungs. eosinophils are a key cause of severe asthma. fasenra is designed to target and remove these cells. fasenra is an add-on injection for people 12 and up with asthma driven by eosinophils. fasenra is not a rescue medicine or for other eosinophilic conditions. fasenra is proven to help prevent severe asthma attacks,

2:14 am
this the scene earlier from new york's one world trade center. you see the spire there lit in red and blue, showing solidarity with the people of new zealand after the killings that took place in christ's church. this building, it, itself, is a powerful symbol of hope that stands where the twin towers fell on 9/11. updating our breaking news this hour out of new zealand, the suspected gunman who massacred dozens of people appeared before a judge in christ's church on saturday. police captured him 36 minutes after the shooting started. 49 people were killed in those attacks. 39 others are still in the hospital at this point. 11 are in intensive care. new zealand's prime minister says extra police officers have been assigned to help recover the bodies and to process the
2:15 am
crime scene with care and sensitive toy islamic culture and customs. our ian watson is live in christ's church new zealand just outside the hospital. ivan. >> reporter: thank you, george. you know, it is islamic tradition in the middle east across central asia to burying someone on the day of their passing. >> that has not been the case here as of this morning. the new zealand prime minister said that they were working to remove some of the victims' bodies from the mosque where they were gunned down to give you an indicator of how difficult and challenging this process and investigation has been. agony for the relatives of the victims here. now, politicians are asking for social media to do more to stop extremism on their sites in the wake of this terrorist attack. facebook for its part says it already polices its platform.
2:16 am
but video of the shooter's attack it actually stayed online for hours before it was pulled down on other sites. s samuel burke has more on this from london. >> reporter: it is truly a vicious cycle. not only was the attacker evident to the manifesto on twitter, the fact that a body camera was used live on facebook shows social media was a part of the attacker's planning. facebook says it quickly took down the original video. we don't know if it was during the 17 minutes broadcast live on facebook or a long time after it was available for many to see. plus many, many hours after the attack, the video could still be found on many major social media platforms. in fact, it was shared with a twitter account with nearly 700,000 followers. you will hear people say don't share the video online. even watching it spreads the reporting on the internet
2:17 am
because algorithms count how many are watching and show it to more and more users. and it is troubling that some tv news outlets even showed the raw video that confuses the algorithms, which should be automatically taking it down once it's flagged because when it sees logos or news graphics from news organizations, this says this could be something journalistically sound. so we have to wait for a mu man moderate tore to fake i take it away. if you look at this, it warns about graphic content. it has a video button that says uncover to see it. facebook says new zealand police alerted us to a video on facebook shortly after the live stream expensed. we quickly removed both the shooter's accounts. we are removing any praise or support for the crime and the shooter or shooters as soon as we are aware. clearly not fast enough on a platform with billions of users and becomes in revenue.
2:18 am
i'm samuel burke, back to you. >> all right. and now i'm going to go to brett lee. he's a cyber security consultant and the founder of internet safe education coming to us live from brisbane, australia. thank you for joining me, brett. this question, how do you police the internet? how do you sensor social media when there are simply to many users online, what is your reaction to what the big social media site versus said in the wake of this terrorist attack? >> i think it's another timely reminder. we have been through this before many times. look, it's not only the amount of people, it's the business model and we will talk there for you, the last presenter. it's the business model whereby ultimately they're a corporation, no matter which platform it is, particularly the
2:19 am
major ones. they exist to make money. so it's going to be impossible for them to introduce identity verification, to actually physically monitor and monitor content that hits the internet. for instance, there is approximately 300 hours of youtube video uploaded every minute. now, that's not going to be ever monitored by human beings, and as we have seen the algorithms are good. i think we've seen in the past these major companies that have sort of slipped under the radar and it takes instances like this to highlight the deficiencies, whereby they have been answerable to nobody. so, really, until something happens, every decision they make is -- or know that governments and communities are rallying together to make these companies more accountable. it is about the amount of information being shared, which becomes advertising space and,
2:20 am
unfortunately, being a corporation that will probably always be the main focus and you know -- in their defense, i certainly don't think they've set things up to purposely cause issues for problems within the world. they're certainly not there to as they used to say make the world a better place. >> yeah, you know, brett, terrorists by their very nature is they're trying to create a sensation. they're trying -- there is incredible symbolism when they carry out their acts of violence. we saw isis using the internet to spread their violence and images that, frankly, shocked the world and now this suspected right wing terrorist appeared to have done something quite similar. is this the paradigm for acts of political violence going into the future? their shocking and, franksly, te deeply disturbing images?
2:21 am
>> reporter: its a very powerful and effective too many. because it reaches so many people. you know, the internet hale really brought all aspects of their world towing in a split second. in that video, the footage shown of the tragic incidents that who kurd in new zealand that will be out there forever now. facebook can go and close accounts, they can take things down, there will be multiple copies of that potentially that can be shared for all of time. so, for turn of a better phrase, the damage is already done. now, i believe and from my experience, i've arrested a lot of people for doing the wrong thing on the internet. but the vast majority of people use it for good. but the other side to that is and the price we pay is that it can be used for grievances as well. so it's always going to be a balance. i think it's going to be incredibly difficult to wind it back much now to make a big
2:22 am
difference. look, maybe i'm wrong. i can't predict the future. but we have created i suppose a bit of a beast that you know is there for the use of people who do want to spread these messages of hate. so, yeah. >> reporter: your words a bit of a beast. now, you studied this field, how quickly did you start to see the suspect's images start to spread out on social media on friday? >> almost instantly. i was actually working down in melbourne and i think it was a number of acts on my phone, it was actually pushed to me. it's not only the fact that i was able get access to it. it was virtually pushed to me. it was in my pocket. so as i pulled it out, i was being exposed to this content. a lot of the people in the world would be exposed to. >> reporter: all right, a very
2:23 am
chilling scenario. thank you for sharing your site from brisbane, security expert, excuse me, i almost dropped my notes here. thank you for your insights here. again, while social media and the internet can be used to spread images of terror and violence, they have also been used to spread messages of support and love and unity here in new zealand and around the world in the wake of these deadly terrorist attacks. george, back to you at the cnn center. >> ivan, there are a look another people coming together. we saw those messages have so important given what happened there. in the wake of the attacks in new zealand, the u.s. president donald trump down played the global threat of white nationalists even after it was revealed that the suspect, the gunman apparently held white supremacist views. the president was asked about the attacks as he issued the first veto of his presidency. our jim acosta has this.
2:24 am
>> reporter: surrounded by supporters, the president turned a veto into the day's main event, rejecting a measure in congress that rebuked mr. trump for trying to use a national declaration to go around law makers to build his border what ul. >> congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and i have the duty to veto it. >> reporter: the president also sounded off on the mosque terrorist attack in new zealand. >> it's a horrible, horrible thing. i told the prime minister that the united states is with them all the way. >> reporter: earlier in the day, the president offered his condolences, tweeting my warmest sympathy and best wishes go out to the people of new zealand after the horrible massacre in the mosque. but the president's critics question whether that response should have been more forceful, condemning a right wing extremist. mr. trump was asked by supporters whether he thinks white nationalism is a rising threat. >> i don't really. i think it's a small group of people that have serious problems. i guess if you look at what
2:25 am
happened in new zealand, perhaps that's the case. i don't know enough about it yet. they're just learning about the person and the people involved. but it's certainly a terrible thing. >> reporter: as a candidate, mr. trump once called for a ban on muslims coming into the u.s., a campaign promise the administration later tried to turn into policy. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. ro democr >> reporter: democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke says attacks are not no. saying these attacks are all too common. >> they're on the rise in the western world. they're on the rise in this country. they are part of a disease of what was thought to be the most tolerant, most open, most welcoming the country the world
2:26 am
had ever known. >> reporter: before the mosque attack, authorities say the killner new zealand wrote a long manifesto expressing anti-muslim and immigration views, describing him as a symbol of white identity and top white house officials are blasting the president's rhetoric had anything to to with the violence in new zealand. >> he says i'm not a nazi, he sounds like a an ecoterrorist and is a ruthless killer. >> reporter: just this week, questions are raised about whether the president's crossed the line. in an interview, mr. trump bragged about his support coming from quote tough people saying i can tell you, i have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the bikers for trump. i have the tough people, but they don't play it tough until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad, very bad. democrats say the president is playing with fire. >> i interpret that kind of comment as a danger to peaceful
2:27 am
transition of power in our democracy. that's one of the fundamental principles of our constitution that we have that kind of peaceful transition of power and respected rule of law. >> reporter: the president said he hadn't red the killer's man fess to he declined to weigh in on that. as to his claim that national right wing extremism is a concern from charlottesville to the synagogue shooting in pittsburgh last year and now the mosque attack in new zealand, it is a threat that can't be denied. >> jim, thank you. news of the new zealand shootings spread quickly and the world responded quickly. we take a look at the noble reaction ahead for you. as we go to break, the world mourns with new zealand, the mayor of paris orders the light to be switched off at the eiffel tower honoring the victims.

it's a now there's one store that connects your life like never before store. the xfinity store is here. and it's simple, easy, awesome. hello, welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. i'm ivan watson in christ's church, new zealand. >> i'm george howell in the cnn center in atlanta. ivan, we will get back to you in a moment. first the man suspected of killing 49 people at two mosque in christ's church, you see him there in court. he appeared in court, brendan tarrant. he remains silent as he was charged with murder. he will stay in jail until
2:32 am
april. his face there blurred due to court restrictions. police say they captured him 36 minutes after the first call came in about shots fired. >> that he resisted arrest. two other people are also if custody, police there are trying to determine if they were directly involved in the massacre. our ivan watson is live -- we just lost ivan. we will get back to ivan shortly. again, this is the scene there. you saw the moment if we pull that video up. it is telling. investigators saying that reresisted arrest and investigators also saying that they put themselves at great risk trying to detain him and of course keeping that community safe. joining now is peter newman. peter is the director of the international center for the study of radicalization and political sy leviolence. we were talking about the moment of the arrest. let's just talk about what
2:33 am
happened, itself. these two attacks on two mosques, so many people killed. what do you make of the motive behind all of this? >> having read the manifesto that the attacker produced before the attack, i think it is very clear. in the manifesto, he asks himself questions. he asks himself, is is this a racist attack? he answers, yes. he asks him himself, is this an islamophobia attack? he answers yes. he says is this an anti-immigrant attack? he says, yes. based on his own attack, i don't think there is any doubt at all what he intended to do. there is this entire rhetoric about invaders coming into western countries. there is this entire rhetoric about the crusades about wanting to fight islam back. and he sees himself as a crusader who is a part of a
2:34 am
global army fighting against the alleged invasion of islam. it's actually in a frightening way, it is quite coherent if you look at the totality of the document. >> i am curious to get your reaction. we have heard responses from leaders around the world about what happened there in new zealand. the response of the u.s. president has also drawn some criticism when he was asked about whether white nationalism was on the rise. your thoughts to his response. >> i think empirically, he's wrong. even in the united states, we've seen documented both by the government, itself, and by groups like the adl, a steady rise in far right groups and white nationalist groups and incidents of hate crime over the past few years. this didn't start with donald trump. it started before. but it's continued under him. so its quite wrong to say that this is not a threat. it is, in fact, a growing threat. but he's right in saying it's
2:35 am
fought an isolated threat. it is important to keep in mind that different types of extremism, whether it's jihadists, or far right extremists, are feeding off each other and even in christ's church, we saw him references twelve e previo previous attacks and revenge for what has gone on before. so it's important to not focus on one single thing because they all feed off each other. >> to your point there, you know, there is always so much talk about radicalization, especially you remember during the many years of the fight against isis, the concern about radicalization, but radicalization when it comes to home-grown terrorism just as big of a threat, isn't it? >> it is. and i personally believe it is a result of deep polarization that a lot of western societies have
2:36 am
und undergone in previous years. it's upon a polarization and radicalization of the fringes of society. it's been a polarization of the main stream of soviet. so when politicians nowadays talk about invaders, when they talk about a threat coming from the outside, when they talk about having to defend ones self, having to defend one's culture and that one's culture is under existential threat. this is a language, a discourse, which even ten years ago, we would have thought longed to the far right extreme. now it's become almost main stream and that i do think is a factor that has contributed to the situation that we've seen. it's not the cause. it's not the only explanation, but it is a factor, no doubt. >> peter, i'm curious to ask you. you know, we talk about radicalization. we talk about these amgroups, the white nationalists, et cetera, what would you say are
2:37 am
the solutions? how do you defeat radicalization and how do you reach out to people before they go too far? >> i think one point is very important, which is that words matter. i think everyone who is in the main stream has to be very conscious of what their rhetoric causes and what kind of conclusions people can draw from this sort of extreme rhetoric that we sometimes even see in the main stream. the second point is very important. it's about the internet. a lot of these groups and white nationalists are very active in virtual subcultures, not necessarily only on the main stream platforms like twitter. and the platforms, i do think our security agency versus to tackle that more seriously. you have to be present there. because white nationalists are networking transnationally in these places and the third point is about policy. i do think there needs to be funding priority and attention
2:38 am
to this threat as much as to the jihadist threat. >> peter newman, we appreciate your insight and perspective. thank you again. >> thank you very much. i believe we now do have our senior international correspondent ivan watson. ivan there live in christ's church, just outside the hospital there and leading our coverage, ivan? >> reporter: thank you, george. much of the focus of the investigation right now is on one key suspect who appeared in a christ's church court earlier on saturday, charged with murder. he is a 28-year-old australian named brendan tarrant. now the australian and new zealand authorities say he had no previous criminal record. the fbi has said that it is searching its databases for any further information on this man, who is said to have traveled extensively internationally prior to his implication in this
2:39 am
act of terror and it appears now that there is a link possibly to turkey at this time and it is from turkey that i am now joined by cnn's senior international correspondent arwa damon. arwa, what are turkish officials telling you about this 28-year-old australian? >> reporter: well, ivan, according to one senior turkish official, this individual traveled to turkey on numerous occasions and may have also traveled to different countries in europe, asia and africa. what turkish authorities are trying to investigate is factually what his motives, his aims, objectives may have been while he was in turkey. what his movements were and who he may have met with. the turkish state broadcaster trt citing officials says that those trips occurred in 2016. some of them were brief. one of them lasted up to 43 days. and this is really all a part of
2:40 am
different snippets of information that are beginning to come together to try to get a better understanding of what this individual's motives may have been on a broader scale, perhaps. perhaps he had other attempts to carry out violence acts of violence, that's what they are trying to determine, keeping in mind, of course this hideous, hideous assault has really shaken not just turks to their very core but muslims and others as well across the world, ivan. >> thank you very much. it has certainly been a devastating act of violence here in new vooeld where people tell y -- new zealand, where people tell you, these times of massacres happen oceans away from our peaceful shores and that sadly has turned out very differently in the wake of over the course of the last 36 hours. arwa damon live from istan bull

2:45 am
and according to "time's" air traffic controllers saw the plane pitching wildly up and down and accelerating to abnormal speed. our oren liibermann is following this live in france. >> reporter: george, bea investigators, the french verdicts are here behind me inspecting and beginning to look into and download that data from the black books, the flight da ra recorder and cockpit voice recorder. if that process goes well, it could be sometime tonight or tomorrow. if they suffered damage that process could be prolonged. once the data is downloaded it bams function of analyzing and gleaning the information. what does it tell us about the pilot, the plane itself, the systems, the mechanics. >> that is where the meat of this investigation will turn. a fork "time's" called a piece a jackscrew may hold a vital crew here and may link this crash to lion air crash in october of the
2:46 am
same 737 max 8 airplane. what is a skrak screw? it's a position that positions the stabilizer in flight. at the crash site, the "new york times" is reporting it was found in such that the stabilizer would have put the plane in a nose down position, making it go very fast and forcing it to dive. right after takeoff that would be both very unusual and incredibly dangerous. there are a number of things that can put the stabilizer in that position. crucially the mcast is another option. it's an automated system intended to help a pilot avoid a low-speed stall. it is that system investigators are looking back in october. if that becomes a focus of this investigation, that can be a big problem for boeing as it figures out why two of these planes perhaps suffered the same problem with the same system causing a crash minutes after takeoff. this is a slow process.
2:47 am
part of that mcast is speculation. crucially the most important data is behind me in this building with bea investigators download agency that data. >> oren liibermann, a slow process, yes, any indication, are you getting any hints about how long this may take when they may be complete? >> it's a question of what condition those black boxes are in. the flight data recorder we know from a source close to the investigation appeared to be based purely on visual inspection, although it looks good, it has suffered damage. it's a deliberate and methodical process to examine every electrical component there and see what was they're in. if it's damaged, it becomes you can repair it? it's already a sort of a methodic cal slow process to dpin w. if all goes well, the data could be downloaded sometime this weekend. that on its own is simply raw
2:48 am
data. it doesn't give information in and of itself. ethiopian authorities will decide who tries to pull the vital information. it could be the french behind me, the americans, the ntsb or they could go somewhere else. we do know ntsb and boeing have representatives here, observes of the process as they download that information from the recorders. >> oren liibermann, thank you. we continue following the attacks that happened in new zealand, that massacre that shocked the country and stunned the entire world. in a moment, how the world is paying tribtd.
