Foreigners among those killed and wounded in New Zealand mosque attacks

Muslims account for just one percent of New Zealand's population, a 2013 census showed, most of whom were born overseas. He was living in Dunedin, a seaside city south of Christchurch, has traveled around the world and spent sporadic periods in New Zealand.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the attacks the "latest example of rising racism and Islamophobia".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Saturday the country's national gun laws will change after at least 49 worshippers were shot dead in the two mosques in Christchurch.

Members of the Bangladesh cricket team, now on tour in New Zealand, said on social media that they had almost been caught up in the tragedy.

Officials have also not confirmed that the man charged is the same person who wrote a 74-page racist manifesto posted online, which appears to lay out a motive in the form of a hatred of non-white immigrants. Police also defused explosive devices in a auto.

Two other people have been arrested in connection with the terror attack, and they remain in custody as police conduct an ongoing investigation as to their possible involvement.

Dr. Sinan Yasalar, media relations director for the Windsor Islamic Association, said the targeted attacks on Muslims in the west have taken their toll on the community.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan echoed those sentiments.

An attack at another mosque killed seven more, and one victim died at a hospital, leaving the country reeling in the aftermath of its deadliest mass shooting in recent history.

"While some of our elected leaders sadly choose not to mention "Muslim" or "mosque" while denouncing the Christchurch attacks, the reality is that these horrific shootings and the Quebec City mosque attack on January 29, 2017, have left Canadian Muslim communities - and indeed, Muslims around the world - feeling very vulnerable and unsafe", wrote the Council's executive director Ihsaan Gardee.

His sister, Roushan, also paid tribute to their father on Facebook, writing: "My father so kind and giving, gave his last breath to the people".

Ardern, who flew to Christchurch on Saturday, said she had spoken to Trump, who had asked how he could help.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker tweeted that he learned of the attack "with horror and profound sadness".

"In these times of mourning and recollection, our common values, that of a Polynesian world that lives in fraternity and respect for everyone, will help us overcome this awful ordeal".

In France, home to western Europe's largest Muslim community, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner ordered regional authorities to bolster security at mosques as a precaution.

The shooting was live-streamed on Facebook, with the suspect killing 49 people and wounding more than 40 at two mosques before getting arrested by police.

"My daughter rang my mum [and] said Dad didn't make it". "London will always celebrate the diversity that some seek to destroy". "They may even be refugees here", Prime Minister Ardern reportedly said.

"Maybe it's not really the first incident that's happened with violence in mosques but it's the first of its kind with that large number of victims that were actually killed in that heinous attack".

Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonisation of Muslims.

In the aftermath of Friday's bloodshed, the country's threat level was raised from low to high.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims criticized the omission in a statement Friday afternoon.
