New Zealand: At Least 49 Killed in Terror Attack

On 15 March, at least 49 people were killed, including women and children, and another 20 injured in shootings at the Masjid Al Noor in central Christchurch and another in suburban Linwood. Two explosive devices attached to suspect vehicles were also found and successfully disarmed. The attack is worst ever recorded in history in the Pacific country. Four suspects, including a woman, were apprehended in connection with the attacks. One of the arrested men had been charged with murder. Police have warned worshippers not to visit mosques anywhere in New Zealand.

Mass shootings in New Zealand are exceedingly rare. The deadliest in modern history prior to today’s attack occurred in the small town of Aramoana in 1990, when gunman David Gray shot and killed 13 people following a dispute with a neighbour.

Individuals in Christchurch and Dunedin are advised to remain vigilant. Avoid the area of the incidents until further notice, obey all instructions issued by the local authorities and report any suspicious objects or behaviour.
