Tarrant's grandmother said she was "gobsmacked" when she first saw the news on television last Friday. "They may take our innocence but we will show the world the meaning of love and compassion", said one note taped to flowers left on a road divider.

Nour Tavis, who was at the mosque and escaped after someone smashed an exterior window of the building, said the shooter turned his gun on everyone he could find inside.

The majority of the patients are male aged 30 to 40, while two of them are boys aged two and 13, said Greg Robertson, chief of surgery at the hospital.

Her father Waseem, 33, the brother of Mr Daraghmeh, is said to be in a stable condition.

Abdul Fatah, a computer engineer in his 50s, was shot dead at Al Noor mosque said his old friend, and a survivor of the massacre, Mohammed al Jabawe.

Reportedly, in the courtroom, the suspect appeared in white prison clothes, barefoot and handcuffed, flanked by two police officers, he smirked when media persons photographed him during the hearing and were seen making the white power gesture.

If a longer extension was sought, that would mean taking part in the elections, something likely to fuel Eurosceptic anger. Mr Farage said: "If politicians think they can walk all over us, then we're going to march back and tell them they can't".

One man who said he was at the Al Noor mosque told media the gunman burst into the mosque as worshippers were kneeling for prayers.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern arrived in the city and, wearing a black headscarf, met with survivors and victims' families.

In a 74-page manifesto released online ahead of the attacks, Tarrant promised to kill Muslims and "directly reduce immigration rates". One man, 18-year-old Daniel Burrough, has been charged with incitement.

Akil said the family had probably immigrated in the past four or five years to New Zealand, to "a safe haven, only to be killed here".

Three other people who were initially detained were not involved in the attacks, Bush said, but authorities are not ruling out the possibility of other suspects.

New Zealand will ban semi-automatic rifles, Attorney-General David Parker said on Saturday and was greeted loudly by a crowd on vigil after the horrific killing of 49 people in Christchurch shootings Parker was meeting a vigil group at the Auckland's Aotea Square.

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

Ms Ardern said the guns used by the attacker appeared to have been modified, and that the suspect's vehicle was full of weapons, suggesting "his intention to continue with his attack".

Another victim, Haji Daoud Nabi, died trying to save a fellow worshiper, his son told an Australian newspaper. Aupito said festival organisers have contacted schools about the decision.

Mosques across New Zealand are "free and welcome to open their doors" but police will maintain an armed presence after 50 people were killed and over an equal number of people were injured in the gruesome Christchurch terror attack.
