New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush has confirmed that four people including a woman were in custody after shootings at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday.
Bush confirmed that the attackers were apprehended by local police and stopped just short of terming it a terrorist attack. But he said “it does not get more serious than this”.
He also said that there were a number of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) attached to cars that have been made safe now.
Though the police have not confirmed the death toll in the horrific incident, reports claim that there are significant casualties and that it is one NZ’s darkest days.
