Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian national cricket team, has called the shooting “shocking and tragic”, sending his support to all those affected.
Kohli also sends his best to the Bangladeshi team who were almost caught up in the attacks.
A gunman who opened fire inside the Masjid Al Noor mosque live-streamed his attack in a 17-minute video that appeared to be recorded on a helmet camera.
The Facebook video started with the man driving up to mosque in Christchurch. After parking his car, he armed himself with at least one semi-automatic gun and walked into the mosque, immediately shooting a person in the doorway.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has described the shooting as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days”.
The shooting took place at Masjid al Noor in central Christchurch and another mosque. Masjid al Noor was filled with worshippers, when the attack happened, as it was a second mosque in suburban Linwood.
