As deadly shooting ongoing in New Zealand mosques, heres what we know

With the deadly shooting incident ongoing in at least two mosques of Christchurch of New Zealand, the Prime Minister Jacinda Adern has termed it to be a terrorist attack.

She also said that this will be remembered as one of darkest days of country.

It is clear now that so far 40 people have been killed, at least 20 injured in armed attacks on two mosques.

Again, bombs were found attached to the attackers’ cars, as per local media sources.

Police have taken 4 people into custody including three men and one woman.

Interestingly, one of the first to react to this outrageous act was Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He said that he blamed these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11 where Islam & 1.3 bn Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror by a Muslim.

He went on to add that this has been done deliberately to also demonize legitimate Muslim political struggles.
