People witnessing the horrific massacre at two mosques in New Zealand on Saturday say the gunman was ruthlessly shooting the worshipers as some others were waiting for him in a car.

The massacre took place during Friday prayers at the al-Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch — a city located on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island.

The shooting attack which, according to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, appeared to have been well-planned, left 49 people killed and 42 others wounded.

Witnesses have said his accomplices waited in a car outside the mosques but the mainstream media narrative has only focused on the main attacker and the other members of the gang are not mentioned at all.

Police have so far arrested an Australian man, identified as Brenton Harrison Tarrant, for the shooting and charged him with one count of murder while more charges were expected to come. This is while four people, including a woman, were initially arrested, one of whom was released hours later.

Witnesses say they saw one assailant fleeing the scene after joining some other people who were waiting for him.

“The young guy, who usually takes care of the mosque … he saw an opportunity and pounced on the gunman and took his gun,” said Syed Mazharuddin, who witnessed the shooting attack. “There were people waiting for him [gunman] in the car and he fled.”

Another resident described the shooting attack at al-Noor mosque as chaotic.

“This guy, this terrorist guy, stood] maybe for two minutes. After that he was shooting everyone, everyone – young people, old women,” said Khaled al-Nobani. “He shot the first one on the gate, two people in the corridor, and went inside and started shooting everyone,” he added.

He also said that it took police too long to arrive at the scene. “The police also took 20 minutes to come…. There was no traffic about. You need two minute [maximum] response.”

Tarrant, 28, appeared at Christchurch District Court on Saturday, where he was charged with murder. He will return to court on April 5. Police said he was likely to face further charges.

  1. And it grew
    And it grew
    And it grew
    And it grew
    What ??
    The official story of course !!

    The fact remains –
    It is the New Zealand Government & further, the Entire New Zealand Political Arena who are to blame for this blood bath.
    They have the power.
    And it is their job / responsibility to keep the nation safe.
    Responsible gun ownership laws need to be put into place
    AND THEY DID NOT DO IT.
    WHY ??
    SO AS NOT TO UPSET ….. WHOM ??
    The Crimes Compensation Pay Out to the Victims will be MASSIVE.
    Now everyone is slinging the word DISGUSTING at each other to dilute the truth.

  2. I vaguely heard someone ask Pauline Hanson something about this situation on my transistor radio this morning ….. I need to go have a look – but I bet there are some Australian political animals who are actually afraid that Pauline Hanson & the Conservative Political element ( Cory Bernardi) has a large following out there which has seriously crimped their jocks.

  3. Sunrise Host David Koch grilled Pauline Hanson on TV …..
    And
    Then
    Senator Derryn Hinch got stuck into her …..
    Well worth watching these 2 men at their outraged best.

  4. George Brandis slams Pauline Hanson for wearing a burka to Question Time …. bla, bla, bla…

    The Burka is – NOT RELIGIOUS DRESS ACCORDING TO ISLAMIC RELIGION
    However some scholars, especially those belonging to the Salafi movement, view it as obligatory for the burka to be worn by women in the presence of non-related male.

  5. It seems odd that this event happened just prior to elections in Australia.
    The Australian government is pushing for open immigration supported by the Zionist Jew Lobby.
    Would sympathies for Muslims in Australia assist the Australian Government agenda?
    You decide!
