"Japan firmly condemns the atrocious shooting carried out in Christchurch", said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a statement, expressing Japan's "sincere solidarity with the people of New Zealand".

Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner Neil Basu said: "Today we will be stepping up reassurance patrols around mosques and increasing engagement with communities of all faith, giving advice on how people and places can protect themselves". Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have been found and they have been disarmed.

Reports suggest that many of those affected are part of New Zealand's migrant and refugee communities.

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", Ardern said, call this "one of New Zealand's darkest days". Police believe one of the arrested may have had nothing to do with the incident and are working to understand what the involvement of the other two people may be.

New Zealand police said 49 people were killed.

The shooting started at about 1:30 p.m. Friday at the mosques, where hundreds had gathered for prayers.

"The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not". One man died and several others were injured in 2017 when Darren Osborne drove a van into people leaving evening prayers.

Witnesses said some victims were shot at close range, with a Palestinian man at one of the mosques saying he saw someone shot in the head. "Police are responding with its full capability to manage the situation, but the risk environment remains extremely high". At least 50 rounds of gunshots were heard during the shooting, said one witness.
