A gunman opened fire in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand today killing 49 people and seriously injuring 20, including children.
The shooter live streamed the attack on Facebook using a helmet cam and posted a link to an 87 page white supremacist manifesto filled with anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim ideas.
New Zealand police are urging people not to share the video link.
A 28-year-old white Australian-born man has been charged with murder in connection with the attacks.
Three others are in custody and police are working to determine their involvement.
The country’s prime minister calls it “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”
World leaders have condemned the attacks and tributes are pouring in.
The New York Stock Exchange held a moment of silence for the victims.
President Trump tweeted the “US stands by New Zealand.”
And Australia’s prime minister is asking for flags to be flown at half staff.
Cities around the globe are adding extra security around mosques and places of worship out of the abundance of caution.
