Dozens Dead in New Zealand Mosque Massacres
In what Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called “one of New Zealand’s darkest days,” at least 49 people were gunned down during Friday prayers at two mosques in the eastern city of Christchurch. Dozens more were injured in the country’s worst ever terror attack. Police have three suspects in custody, noting that they had not previously been on watchlists, and said explosive devices found in their cars had been defused.
What do we know about the suspects? One of the alleged gunmen, a 28-year-old Australian who reportedly livestreamed the attack, previously published an anti-immigrant manifesto detailing his plans.
