"We believe that 40 people have lost their lives in this act of extreme violence" - New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern describes the Christchurch mosque shootings as a "terrorist attack"
Extremely sad day for New Zealand and the world. Christchurch terror attacks on two mosques leave 40 dead. PM Adern: Attacker is "extremist right wing violent terrorist", New Zealand was chosen because of its values which "can not be shaken".
Like all New Zealanders, I'm in a state of shock about the terrorist attacks on 2 Christchurch mosques which killed 40 people & left 20+ seriously injured. This isn't the NZ we know & love. It's an unprecedented attack. Deepest sympathies to families. RIP
I am deeply shocked and don’t have adequate words to condemn the deadliest massacre in the mosque #Alnoor in #ChristChurch #NewZeland Terrorism is the worst enemy of our shared humanity.

A self-avowed militant white supremacist has gone on a spree-shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand. He filmed himself massacring people in cold blood at the Christchurch mosque.
Our hearts grieve for our Muslim brothers and sisters murdered in this cowardly attack on people innocently at prayer. We grieve too for the wounded. And their families. This attack is also a vicious assault on the good, peace-loving people of New Zealand
Absolutely horrific news to wake up to. Thoughts are with everyone affected by this disgusting act of cowardice. Christchurch mosque shootings: Forty dead after New Zealand attacks
This is so so horrific. We need more than 'thoughts and prayers' from our political leaders - stronger accountability for everyone and every institution enabling this culture of hate and Islamophobia.
This is disgusting! I have major issues with religion and at this moment in history particularly Islam I do however, have no issue with Muslims, every one of them that I have personally met have been very cool and nice I won't pray but here is some love 👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨
These attacks don’t happen in a vacuum. When Islamist inspired terrorists attack we ask who fed their hatred. We should ask the same question now. And we know the answer.
Far right violence like mosque massacre in NZ is fuelled by anti-immigrant & anti-Muslim prejudice stirred by mainstream media & politicians - from Trump to Tommy Robinson. They create the hate atmosphere that extremists see as legitimising their actions
