Mosque massacre gunman's family: 'We're all gobsmacked'

Facebook said it removed 1.5 million videos globally of the Christchurch mosque attack in New Zealand in the first 24 hours after the attack.

On Monday Ms. Ardern - who spent Sunday morning with the Muslim community of Wellington - will gather her Cabinet to discuss changing the country's gun laws.

Speaking to press the day after the devastating incidents, the country's leading politician, Jacinda Ardern, has pledged to restrict the ownership of guns.

"There will be no opposition to it".

"Enquiries are ongoing to establish who left the object".

Abdifatah and Abdi are the older brothers of three-year-old Mucaad, who is the youngest known victim of Friday's mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch.

The company said it is also removing all edited versions of the video that do not show graphic content out of respect for the people affected by the mosque shooting and the concerns of local authorities.

"There are further questions to be answered". She said her office sent it to parliamentary security two minutes after getting it. America is a totally different situation.

"The prime minister, when she came wearing her scarf, that was big for us", said Dalia Mohamed, who was mourning Hussein Mustafa, the father-in-law of her daughter and a volunteer at the Al Noor mosque where more than 40 people died.

"We are so aware of the cultural needs that we have been doing this as quickly and carefully as possible", he said.

Akshesh Sharma moved to Christchurch from Fiji to study.

He says he's not sure if the shooter ran out of bullets or got scared. Prime Minister Ardern said anyone considering handing over their guns was encouraged to do so. "You had a mobile offender across a large metropolitan city, I am very happy with the response of our staff", he said. "I can understand in the USA maybe, but here it's a different story". So that meant a ban on semi- automatics, and there was a huge buyback, about 650,000 guns were brought back and destroyed, because the guns were now banned. "I haven't spoken to her directly, but she has reached out, an acknowledgment of what has occurred here in New Zealand", Ardern said a media conference when asked if Facebook should stop live-streaming.

Brenton Tarrant, the 28-year-old Australian-born suspect accused of gunning down 50 people during Friday's terror attacks here dismissed his lawyer and is planning to represent himself in future court hearings, raising fears that he could attempt to use the trial to express his extremist views.

"But some people have said because it was not a battlefield it is okay to wash the body".

"New Zealand has to have this debate", Alexander Gillespie, a law professor at the University of Waikato, told the New York Times.

He grew up in the small town of Grafton in Australia, but had travelled widely in recent years.

Law enforcement personnel also re-iterated that Tarrant's family will continue to cooperate with the police by questioning them at times.

"It's only since he traveled overseas I think that that boy has changed completely to the boy we knew", she said.

"But it is clear public sentiment has changed in relation to semi-automatic weapons and we acknowledge that, which is why we're putting this ban in place".

Philip Alpers, a Sydney University gun policy analyst, said New Zealand had rejected the most important reform among a raft of gun restrictions that halved Australia's gun death rate. "So whilst we might have seen action taken here, that hasn't prevented (the footage) being circulated beyond New Zealand shores".
