Horrible.

Even places like New Zealand affected by today's madness.

You don't have to look far to see people defending and even congratulating the terrorist

I didn’t realise we had such a Kiwi contingent here on PH.

I love your country and have the fondest memories of time spent there as a child. As somebody says above even in today’s crazy world NZ feels insulated from much of the lunacy that goes on elsewhere. A trusting, accepting place.

It’s so sad to see this happen.

Me also I lived and worked in NZ in the 90's its the last place you would expect this madness
what goes though the head of someone who goes out to kill as many random people as possible??
just cannot comprehend it ,

I wish I hadn’t clicked on that and read some of the comments, what’s wrong with people?

What an horrific attack, RIP to the victims.

The person that did this is clearly mentally ill and disturbed, to be able to go back into the place where you've just murdered a group of innocent people and shoot the pile of corpses is not the act of a sane person.

His intention was to cause division and hatred, I think history will show he achieved the opposite.

Nothing random about it. They knew exactly who they were targeting. The sick terrorist fks regarded children as legitimate targets.
Like Isis, thry hope to sow division in society to start a war. Sadly a lot of the media will jump on the manifesto and use it to link people and groups to the scumbags ideology. This is exactly what the shooter wants but no doubt many will gladly oblige using it to blame individuals and groups that have nothing to do with the shooter before the bodies are even cold.

I've only been here a week and friendliness in this city is above anything I've experienced anywhere before. I wouldn't begrudge any local Muslims feeling paranoid for the near future but hope in time the friendship and trust of others I have seen in my short time here is restored.

According to Swedish news, this was a payback for the terror attack in Stockholm a few years ago.

I'm not a fan of religion in any form. To me, on face value, it's all a bit mental, even though I do see much good can and does come of it, but this is beyond abhorrent. It makes me extremely sad.

RIP to those killed and my sympathies to those affected.

Utterly senseless.

I was lost for words after reading the news this morning. I have spent many years in NZ and I would have never thought that something like this would happen there.

My thoughts go out to all those caught up in this mindless act of violence.

It is mentioned in the manifesto that seeing the little girl killed in that attack is what was the kick starter. By the words of that manifesto, the chap who wrote it has been planning this for years. Extremely disappointing his plans weren't picked up on.

Live report in NZ now saying 49 dead.

For me the most shocking part is the way he carried it out in absolute cold bloodiness, even going back out of the mosque to get a different gun from his car then re-entering the mosque to make sure he killed those he had already shot. No sign of any police when he calmly drove off - so very sad and shocking.

Disgusting.

I wonder which hate preachers inspired him?

His manifesto was several steps beyond anything Robinson has said.

It included mentions of The Great Replacement, a conspiracy theory pushed heavily by the likes of Generation Identity.
