Christchurch: calls for stricter gun laws as victims are released to families

Tarrant arrived on a three-month tourist visa and stayed in Israel for nine days in October 2016, immigration authority spokeswoman Sabine Haddad said. "Unfortunately, there were no such details in that email", she said.

The New Zealand prime minister also announced an inquiry into the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday that left 50 people dead.

Ardern noted that attempts to reform had failed before under pressure from the gun lobby.

Tarrant had recently lived in Dunedin, some 350 kilometres from Christchurch.

Australia is making public grants available to help places of worship bolster security after an Australian white supremacist was accused of a terror attack in New Zealand.

Earlier on Monday, gun retailer Gun City said it had sold weapons to the man charged with murder, but not the high-powered weapon used in the mosque shootings.

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

"Those two police officers acted with absolute courage", Bush said. It said in a tweet, which has since been deleted, that it made a decision to remove Sky News Australia off air until they are "confident that the distressing footage" is no longer being shared.

Thiem edges Federer in 3 sets to win Indian Wells
Federer, with an extra days rest following Rafael Nadal's semi-final withdrawal, surrendered a one-set lead to lose to Thiem. Thiem will also play in Miami, hoping to complete the "Sunshine Double" with a victory there after his Indian Wells win.

A teenager, whose name can not be published, appeared in court on Monday and was charged with distributing that footage.

And there was what some have seen as a polite rebuke of U.S. President Donald Trump, who said he did not see a rise in white nationalism although it may have been an issue in New Zealand.

Huge piles of flowers were laid at sites near the mosques and crowds of people of all faiths gathered to pay respects.

Many came together for a haka - a traditional Maori ceremonial dance that has been performed by groups across New Zealand in the wake of killings.

"It brings to mind our own values and why we find this so abhorrent".

Wearing a black scarf, Ardern hugged members of the Muslim community at a refugee centre on Saturday, saying she would ensure freedom of religion.

On Monday morning, two homes in New South Wales, Australia, were raided by police in connection with the mosque attacks.

Gun City owner David Tipple said the alleged gunman bought four weapons and ammunition between December 2017 and March 2018.

Mike Thalassitis Dead: Love Island Star Dies, Aged 26
Since news of his death broke, fans and co-stars have taken to social media to pay their tributes to the late reality star . Footballer Joel Byrom, who played with Thalassitis at Stevenage , tweeted: "Shocked and gutted to hear about this".

"We detected nothing extraordinary about the license holder".

On Monday, Tarrant's lawyer said his client was not mentally unstale and planned to represent himself in the court. Two men faced charges unrelated or "tangential" to the attack, while a woman had been released, he said.

"The way he presented was rational and someone who was not suffering any mental disability. Obviously these social media platforms had wide reach and this is a problem that goes way beyond New Zealand and plays out in other parts of the world".

"He didn't appear to me to be facing any challenges or mental impairment, other than holding fairly extreme views", Peters told the New Zealand Herald, adding that the accused gunman did not display any regret.

"We were chosen for the very fact that we are none of those things", she said in a national address during which her voice cracked with emotion at times.

"We believe in the justice system here and we know it will do what is right". "It's my country", she said.

Dozens of graves were being dug in readiness for that release, which Police Deputy Commissioner Wally Haumaha said he hoped would happen soon.

Bodies would be handed over to families from Sunday evening and are expected to be returned by Wednesday, Arden said at a news briefing on Sunday.

Full details of who died in the attack have yet to be confirmed publicly by authorities, and the list is not complete, but it documents the worldwide scale of the tragedy, with people hailing from across the Muslim world and members of two generations of the same family killed. About 12 remain in critical condition. Name their religion. Put your arms around them.
