New Zealand starts to bury mosque attack victims

New Zealand began burying its dead a day after at least one gunman attacked worshippers in two mosques in the city of Christchurch-killing 49 people and injuring over 40 others.

The shooter broadcast footage of the attack on Facebook which was quickly shared by users on other social media platforms. He also posted a manifesto online denouncing immigrants and calling them quote "invaders".

Three people have been arrested, including one man, an Australian in his late 20s, charged with murder.

He appeared at court on Saturday (March 16).

SOUNDBITE: NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER, JACINDA ARDERN, saying: "None of those apprehended had a criminal history either here or in Australia and as I said last night, they were not on any watch list either here or in Australia.

(FLASH) Given global indicators around far right extremism, our intelligence community has been stepping up their investigations in this area." New Zealand's prime minister added that the gunman had a license for the weapons and had five guns including two semi automatic riffles, and called for a change in gun laws in her country.

The victims hailed from India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Egypt, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Turkey.

Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonization of Muslims. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said in a social media post: "I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11." U.S. President Donald Trump, condemned the quote "horrible massacre".

The gunman's manifesto posted online praised Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

WHILE Trump said he had not seen the manifesto...he did add- that he does not see white nationalism as a rising threat around the world.

SOUNDBITE: U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, Saying: "I think it's a small group of people who have very very serious problems. I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand perhaps that the case, I don't know enough about it yet." Meanwhile, the broadcasting of the shooting on social media raised calls for more regulations on tech giants.

Hours after the attack, copies of the video were still available on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as well as Facebook's Instagram and WhatsApp.

Democratic U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Mark Warner, criticized the companies as being too slow in taking down the post.

Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all said they were taking action to remove the videos.
