The footage showed him firing indiscriminately at men, women and children from close range inside the Al-Noor mosque. Seven of the dead were inside the suburban Linwood Masjid Mosque and three died outside the same mosque.

In the manifesto Tarrant laid out 74-pages of his racist dogmas, and described himself as "Just a ordinary White man, 28 years old. We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate". "Born in Australia to a working class, low income family".

"We also cooperate with law enforcement to facilitate their investigations as required", it said.

An unidentified man wrestled a gun from the hands of the man involved in the terror attack in New Zealand and prevented further deaths, according to witnesses.

Reports of the attack are conflicting, variously presenting the attacks as taking place at one or two mosques in Christchurch.

"In a country like New Zealand you don't have many terror incidents".

The foreign ministry says there are 330 Indonesian citizens in Christchurch, 130 of them students.

World leaders condemned the attacks and offered condolences.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush did not elaborate on the suspects who are in custody.

Several first-person accounts of the event, such as those from players on the Bangladesh cricket team who were visiting the mosque before playing a game in the area, have since said that the shooting lasted between 10 to 15 minutes.

Speaking to media, Bush said police had taken four people - three men and one woman - into custody. He said he considered it a terrorist attack.

Mark Nichols told the New Zealand Herald he heard about five gunshots and that a Friday prayer-goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.

She said there police have got no reason to suspect there might be others out there, but they have not ruled it out.

"To the Muslim community- my heart is broken by the horror & loss in New Zealand".

Forty people were killed and more than 20 seriously wounded in shootings at two mosques in New Zealand in what Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said was a terrorist attack.
