bust as you say what they're doing and not talk we're here looking or not the way he's tough in the guards at all it is starting a shooting at. a second nearby mosque was also attacked it's not clear if 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 such speaks of the cause have now been found and they have been disarmed. the driver films the moment police caught the man believed to have carried out the attack his car forced off the road we'll still spinning. he has been identified as an australian citizen with a trail of far right extremist views police say they're still determining if anyone
6:04 pm
else was involved. three other people were apprehended we believe one of those persons. who was armed and was at the same might have had nothing to do with this incident. and the two other people would have ended began a position of farms in the general barbara we are working through to understand what they are above. elsewhere scenes of distress as the grieving community grapples with its own search 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 scared for our future not just a huge loss of life today i'm going to be feeling sorry for him by myself wearing
6:05 pm
my head scarf and i've never felt that way before but a sense that things may never be the same again responding to the attack prime minister. asked people not to spread for to job the shooting. we have undoubtedly experience in a tech today that is unprecedented unlike anything that we have experienced before but as i say new zealand has been chosen because we are not a place where violent extremism exists we reject those and oceans 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
6:06 pm
what all of us can at least it was ensure that we do not sheer sprayed or actively engage in that message of hate we have been given assurance that online. platforms we're some of those images have been she had are actively being remote but i just ask people don't she them. straight to christ is that what we joined they don't use that so much welcomes. new zealand's now just waking up to the aftermath of this attack was due to happen today. a man in his late twenty's is you're here in court. what the least told us and the prime minister just. and it is he is going to come down to christchurch tonight the. people there are reacting. well as you see crashes is just waking up to this
6:07 pm
situation and probably hoping that it was a bad dream but unfortunately it is not in the thing you did with did not leave it open i had many helicopters flying around the city i could hear them through the night and it is just a reaction of excellent shock and dismay here in the city and. just just absolute horror and this could have and to members of our community now you mention they have had a cop to search through the night the country clearly is on high alert what are people likely to see and hear that is different today well the police have state they are really going to be increasing the prisons not just in christchurch especially but also around the country that's today going to be very visible and. beams and community things that have been planned for this weekend that you just
6:08 pm
really want the reassuring presence and during this it will be announced as the real edge of things which we have been in russia. cancelled and notably a cricket match between new zealand and us which was junction and take place in the city of the not very far from the muslims to the l.c.s. . houses that is muslim community reacting to being targeted in this way. and i have has only been able to speak to any of the yes there will be a joke this is a definite leader of the reaction that you're hearing through the made here and online and it's just just an absolute excellent horror of any one of the prominent. people in new zealand who is muslim sonny bill williams. took to twitter to make a statement shortly after he heard the news just expressing his his absolute shock
6:09 pm
and as an increase of his this fellow muslims in new zealand so i thought early in christchurch thank you. new zealand prime minister just in the rough elbow song is an expert on terrorism and crisis management the german institute for international security affairs here in berlin 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 the scribes and self 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 the police there may be also another person potentially involved in talk of some sort of money fester that he didn't publish
6:10 pm
what have you heard about well this is true i would underline what was just said about spreading material i'm thank goodness this isn't available that easy anymore but yes there was 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 was a great replacement that 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 between between this attack and new zealand the vitex some years ago perpetrated by hundreds of brave make in in no way you have countries where renowned for being quite peaceful that are suddenly rent by this sort of violent
6:11 pm
extremism can one country learn from another well if we can learn something from no way then it was really to maintain an open and free society because no we actually reacted very stately i mean everybody was shocked and there was. great deal of mourning but there wasn't a rush to sort of increase the surveillance or that sort of have any kind of further security measures in place when the first responders have to upgrade their their game but beyond that i think the liberal defend the liberal order of norway was upheld and i think the new zealand should do the same the perpetrator just apparently chose new zealand because a was accessible and b. apparently because the church was previous a church it was we convey a purpose 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 made a point about about noy we heard from madison and they're saying that that new zealand will not be changed by this attack but countries certainly here in europe
6:12 pm
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 more intelligence about surveillance but this is not to say there aren't 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 attack was lifestream this was a unfortunately a new thing and i fear this is maybe 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 when events like this live streamed in this way it's not something that can be
6:13 pm
a house very quickly i mean the european union for example is at the moment considering a law to force forms to take down content within an hour if it's being declared terrorist and then otherwise they would incur heavy fines and that does. potentially makes sense in a context like this but 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 a 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 that sympathies to the victims and their families.
6:14 pm
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 he's a via and we share their horror and condemnation of this terrible attack he's a stick to talk. amongst reactions from other world leaders is this tweet from french president emmanuel kroll all our thoughts are with the victims of these heinous crimes against the mosques in christchurch in new zealand and their 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 tweeting that he strongly condemns the terrorist attack this reaffirms he says what we have always maintained that terrorism does not have
