Officials say security at mosques across the U.S. has been increased after a ??mass shooting at two mosques in New Zealand that left 49 people dead and 50 wounded.
??It happened in the city of Chirstchuch as worshippers gathered together for Friday prayers.
??Police in the country are telling all mosques to close, while officials in the U.S. are also taking steps to ensure safety.
??The LAPD tweeted, “While this attack appears to be an isolated incident with no nexus to LA, out of an abundance of caution we’re providing extra patrols around mosques.” ??Four suspects were taken into custody, one has been charged with murder.
??Meanwhile, New Zealand’s Prime Minister spoke about the attacks.
??“We have undoubtedly experienced an attack today that is unprecedented, unlike anything that we’ve experienced before.
??The NYPD is also looking into security at certain locations throughout the five boroughs.
??One Islamic leader in New Zealand told NBC News, “Muslims have been in New Zealand for over 100 years.
Nothing like this has ever happened.” ??Adding, “We go around the world and tell people we live in the most peaceful country in the world.
This will not change our minds about living here.” ??
