Brenton Tarrant, believe to be behind the New Zealand terror attack, described himself as a “regular white man” who wants to “bring to attention the truth of the assault on our civilisation”
One of the Christchurch mosque gunmen published a chilling manifesto online before the massacre.
Forty people been killed in the attacks on two holy buildings in the New Zealand city.
One of the killers – who live-streamed the attack – reportedly posted an 87-page document online before the bloodbath.
The shooter, named as Brenton Tarrant, believed to be 28, is said to admire Norway mass shooter Anders Behring Breivik.
He reportedly wrote in his manifesto: “I am just a regular white man, from a regular family. Who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people.
An attack in New Zealand would bring to attention the truth of the assault on our civilisation, that no where (sic) in the world was safe, the invaders were in all of our lands, even in the remotest areas of the world and that tehre was no where (sic) left to go that was safe and free from mass immigration.”
The shooter claims to represent “millions of European and other ethno-nationalist peoples”
He adds: “We must ensure the existence of our people, and a future for white children,” a phrase commonly used by white supremacists.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said: “This is one of New Zealand’s darkest days. This is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.”
She confirmed 40 were killed and 20 were injured.
Two mosques in the Hagley Park and Linwood areas of Christchurch were targeted.
In the killer’s live-stream, he can be seen parking his vehicle outside the Hagley Park mosque, before taking two guns and walking a short distance to the entrance of the building.
He then opened fire. Over the course of five minutes, he repeatedly shoots worshippers, leaving well over a dozen bodies in one room alone.
He returned to the car during that period to change guns, before going back to the mosque to shoot anyone showing signs of life.
