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

A 28-year-old man has been charged over the shootings in the city of Christchurch, according to reports, and will appear in court on Saturday morning local time.

At least 49 people were killed and dozens injured in the unprecedented attack that stunned the nation and the world.

Tarrant was remanded without a plea until his next scheduled appearance in the South Island city's High Court on April 5.

Separate "endorsements" are required to own semi-automatic weapons like those used in Friday's attack, as well as pistols and other restricted weapons. She said the shooter had five guns, two of them semi-automatic. Police said the alleged shooter took seven minutes to travel to the second mosque in the suburb of Linwood, where seven people were killed.

Handcuffed and wearing a white prison suit, Tarrant did not speak.

Many, such as the alt-right, are hidden in plain sight, with their proponents given a platform on social media websites - including Facebook, on which one of the terrorists in New Zealand live-streamed his rampage - as well as mainstream Western news outlets.
