    Deadly Attack on Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand

    An Australian man, believed to be 28-year-old man, who calls himself Brenton Tarrant, conducted a mass shooting at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, leaving dozens of people killed. Prior to the shooting, he reportedly wrote a 73-page "manifesto" about his plans.

    The country's prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, immediately held a press conference, where she referred to the incident as "one of New Zealand's darkest days" and an "unprecedented act of violence."
