Suspect live streams New Zealand mosque attack on social media

**EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: CONTAINS DISTRESSING MATERIAL** ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

The suspect in an attack on mosques in New Zealand live streamed himself getting ready, going to the mosque and opening fire on worshippers who had gathered for prayers on Friday (March 15).

In a livestream widely circulated on social media, the suspect could be seen driving with guns in the front seat, looking briefly into the camera before walking to the the front door of a mosque which he enters and starts shooting randomly.

At one point he returns to the car to change guns and goes back to the mosque.

Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.

The video shows the gunman driving off at high speed and later firing at parked cars and a building.

Police said the second mosque attack was in the suburb of Linwood, but gave no details.

Another unconfirmed video taken by someone else appeared to show police apprehending the gunman by the side of a road.

Forty people were killed and more than 20 were seriously wounded in the shootings which New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described as a terrorist attack.
