The New Zealand government is looking at banning semi-automatic weapons following the killing of 49 worshipers at two Christchurch mosques, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

Two other people arrested are yet to be charged.

Police were able to neutralize two devices: an improvised explosive device at one of the mosques and another device found in the suspect's vehicle, which was also rendered safe.

Police said three people were in custody.

Ardern said the victims came from across the Muslim world, with Turkey, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia among the countries rendering consular assistance.

Bishop of Polynesia - The Most Reverend Fereimi Cama said the Anglican Diocese of Polynesia unequivocally condemned this act of terrorism. It was still unclear whether any other shooters were involved in the attacks.

Police officers search the area near the Masjid Al Noor mosque, site of one of the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Saturday, March 16, 2019.

Tarrant, in his rambling manifesto, deemed Trump "a symbol of renewed white identity". He said he was a 28-year-old white Australian and a racist. Ardern admitted "the individual charged with murder had not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police, for extremism".

Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population, a 2013 census showed, most of whom were born overseas.

He thanked the neighbours of the mosque for their support and said "New Zealand people are nice". He said he has contempt for the wealthiest one percent.

"It makes people panic", Zhong said.

"I saw dead people everywhere".

New Zealand's Minister for Pacific Peoples Aupito William Sio said he spoke to one of the Trustees of the Festival last night about the decision, and why it was made. "I don't understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone".

He said he helped about five people recover in his home. He said one was slightly injured.

"To strengthen us on a number of fronts, including but not limited to enhanced border controls, sharing with Australia, and any practical reinforcement of our watch list processes", she said. Ms Ardern said authorities will be reviewing how the accused gunman accessed five firearms.

The video showed a man driving to the Al Noor mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people inside. Children's screams can be heard in the distance as he returns to his auto to get another rifle.

After going back outside and shooting a woman there, he got back in his auto where a song can be heard blasting. The singer bellows, "I am the god of hellfire!" and the gunman drives off before police even arrive. The video then cuts out. One victim died in hospital.

He also reached out to the Muslim community in Christchurch and in New Zealand. "I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand perhaps that's a case, I don't know enough about it yet". He said he has donated to many nationalist groups, but claimed not to be a direct member of any organisation.

"Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters in New Zealand - a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking nearly beyond comprehension". Still, public debatebegan growing late past year about re-examining the country's firearms laws. Ardern, whose party campaigned on the promise of raising the intake of refugees, called the planned increase "the right thing to do".

The Pacific Music Awards organisation in New Zealand also expressed its shock and solidarity over the shootings.

Christchurch, sometimes called the Garden City, has been rebuilding since an natural disaster in 2011 killed 185 people and destroyed many downtown buildings.
