A day after he gunned down 49 people who were attending Friday prayers in two mosques in Christchurch in New Zealand, the main suspect Brenton Harrison Tarrant was charged with one count of murder Saturday.

Mr Bainimarama also said his government will be working closely with authorities in New Zealand to monitor the welfare of Fijians in Christchurch. He used five guns in the attacks and had a gun license allowing him to legally purchase all of his weapons.

The youngest person missing and feared dead is three years old, Greenhill tells NPR's Weekend Edition.

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.

The Daraghmehs are of Palestinian origin, but have Jordanian citizenship, like several others listed as Jordanian nationals among those killed and wounded in the mosque attacks.

"The man in the vehicle has been charged with firearms offences".

"For them to come to what they thought was a safe country and end up facing a shocking incident like this is really sad to hear", says Mark Greenhill, news director for New Zealand's news website Stuff.

Hungry for any news, families and friends of the victims gathered at the city's Hagley College, near the hospital.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the country will change its gun laws following the mass shootings on Friday.

50 people died after a gunman opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand during midday prayers on Friday.

The terrorist killed 49 people in the Masjid Al Noor mosque and another mosque in the city's southern suburb of Linwood.

"I can tell you one thing right now, our gun laws will change", Ardern said adding that a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be considered.

"The United States strongly condemns the attack in Christchurch".

He livestreamed 17 minutes of the rampage at the Al Noor mosque, where, armed with at least two assault rifles and a shotgun, he sprayed worshippers with bullets, killing at least 41 people.

The Canterbury cricket team, one of six first-class sides in New Zealand's domestic Plunket Shield competition, also chose not to play their final round match in Wellington, which handed the title to Central Districts. But he said some people frustrated because "they want to get on with their grieving process".

Ardern noted that this individual traveled around the world and spent "sporadic periods of time" in New Zealand.

US President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised by the accused gunman in a manifesto posted online as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

"My message was, "Sympathy and love for all Muslim communities".

The New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, is expected to give a press conference later on Sunday announcing further details about gun laws set to be introduced in the aftermath of the attack.

Another of Daoud's sons, Yama, was on the way to the mosque - to make up with his father after a small falling out - when he bumped into a friend outside who told him "your father saved my life".
