Police step up security at United Kingdom mosques after New Zealand massacre

Many dead in New Zealand mosque shooting, witness says

"The White House is calling this a "vicious act of hate"...that is crystal clear here".

William and Kate, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, praised the people of Christchurch and said that "no person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship".

"This is and will be one of New Zealand's darkest days", Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

Apparently inspired by Norwegian far-right terrorist, Anders Breivik, who killed more than 70 children in 2011, the terrorists orchestrated a vile attack that including shootings, explosive devices (that were found and disabled), and all manner of bloodthirsty mayhem.

Speaking at a ceremony in Istanbul, Erdogan said: "It is obvious that the New Zealand shootings were a result of long planning and motivation; it can not be brushed off as impulsive behavior".

He wrote that an attack in New Zealand would show that no place on earth was safe and that even a country as far away as New Zealand is subject to mass immigration.

The MCC said it had contacted the police in Chicago, Morton Grove and Skokie and asked for extra patrols as well.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also announced increased police presence at mosques around the state, "as a precaution". Awad said those who incite violence want Muslims to be fearful, but he is confident that authorities are doing all they can to protect mosques.

New Zealand Police urged anyone in Christchurch to stay indoors and report any suspicious behaviour. The police, cautioning citizens to remain indoors, said they were hunting "an active shooter" in the centre of Christchurch city.

Three men and one woman were taken into custody on Friday evening, according to New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush.

The 28-year-old man charged with murder is expected to appear in court. The man charged, who has Australian citizenship, was described by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison as an "extremist, right-wing" terrorist.

The accused gunman's manifesto praised Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common objective".

Police, who initially imposed a city-wide lockdown, sent armed officers to a number of scenes and the threat level in the nation was raised from "low" to "high".

"You may have chosen us", Ardern said Friday, "but we utterly reject and condemn you".

When mainstream politicians espouse such violent and irrational ideological hatred toward Muslims, whether in Australia or the Netherlands with the likes of Geert Wilders, is it any surprise that white supremacists feel emboldened to turn to terrorism and murder?

"Mr. Trump, your words matter". "You will need to assure all of us, Muslims, Blacks, Jews, immigrants, that we are protected".

You may have chosen us.

The Bangladesh cricket team - which had been in Christchurch for a test match and was about to go into the mosque when the attack happened - all escaped without injury. Forty-one people were killed at al-Noor mosque and seven people died at the Linwood mosque.

Flowers were laid outside the Finsbury Park mosque in north London, which suffered its own tragedy in 2017 when a man killed one person and injured others after deliberately driving a van into pedestrians outside the mosque. According to Christchurch Hospital, at least 48 people were being treated for gunshot wounds, which ranged from severe to critical.
