What about the attack is known

In two mosques in the new Zealand city of Christchurch has at least opened a Sagittarius the fire and at least 40 people were killed and more injured. The whole country is in shock, the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern spoke of "one of the darkest days in new Zealand". The attacks were to be regarded as a "terrorist attack", which was apparently "well-prepared". What do we know about the attack and what is still unclear.

What we know

The number of dead is now well known: The police reported that at least 49 people were killed. The Prime Minister Ardern had previously spoken of at least 40 dead. A further 20 were in part seriously injured. Later, the health authorities reported that 48 people were treated with gunshot wounds in the hospitals of the city.

Four Suspects was able to take the police already detained three men and a woman. They had attached explosive devices to their cars.

The attacks took place in Al-Noor mosque in the city centre of Christchurch and at a mosque in the suburb of Linwood. They took place during Friday prayers, when the mosques were full. Against 13.15 PM local time the first shots were fired.

One of the perpetrators streamed his act live on Facebook. Facebook deleted his account, according to a note to the police. The Video circulates still further in the network.

The alleged Terrorist, the attack, the Al-Noor mosque, is, according to the Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison, a right-wing Australians. He had previously been on any terrorist list.

What we know

Who the detained Suspects are, is unknown. It is obvious that among them also the man is seen in the Video of the attack as the perpetrator, but a confirmation of this. The police has driven the safety precautions in Christchurch, but slow down, which suggests that she expects another fugitive Suspects. The three other detainees are not known.

delivery, such As the attack exactly, is unclear. The police did not indicate whether only one of the Suspects shot actually, and then of a mosque in the other went, or whether the attackers coordinated in two places at the same time struck.

The network has been circulating a radical right-wing Manifesto, which seems to be the stop to announce. Whether the author is really the culprit, or one of the detainees, not yet. Also, it is not known whether the Suspects were linked to other right-wing groups or organisations. (red)
