Only just saw this – pretty sickening stuff (seems like some kind of Anders Breivik style white supremacist gunman).

Yeah, I've been looking at stuff about it.

This link identifies the gunman who live streamed the attack on Twitter, and shows some of the footage in the lead up.

https://www.news.com.au/world/pacific/gunman-who-opened-fire-on-christchurch-mosque-addresses-attack-in-manifesto/news-story/70372a39f720697813607a9ec426a734

Interestingly, NZ gun laws are a lot less strict than ours. You can legally purchase semi automatic rifles, provided the magazine size is limited (something easily overcome) and while you need a gun license there is no registration of weapons.

The shooter seems to be claiming he did this in response to Muslim violence and their "occupation" of what were "white" lands. Confused

Hearing that he came back into the mosque looking for survivors is just so awful. I don't know how many people were there, but you'd be expecting casualties in double figures at least.

He's a terrorist. No other way to put it.

Yep. No doubt of that, deliberately planned it and the location for maximum media impact

I saw the 'go pro' live stream. I see at least 30 people killed.

A lot of people have seen it, it's apparently pretty disturbing

Just heard on radio that 4 people now in custody, 1 of them Australian.

Don't know how anyone could sit through that, to be honest.

I didn't know what it was (real or a movie) when it was sent to me.

Watching the ABC news channel which has decided not to show the social media. No such problem with the Herald-slum which is already full of inaccuracies. The Bangladeshi cricket team was not going to the nor had been to the mosque. They were walking from their hotel to the cricket ground. The mosque was nearby.

Australian pollies sending out twitter feeds withe normal thoughts and prayers rhetoric.

The perpetrator who live streamed his attack is stated to be Australian born.

Another mosque however has reportedly been attacked and this seemingly may have been carried out by another shooter.

Its certainly hit the news. Flicking through it live reports on Russian tv, Asia (singapore based ) news, British, French, German and even Fox. Al Jazeera has picked it up. Although I suspect Fox will have some piece about people not being armed so they can respond.
