The violent shooting in two mosques rocked New Zealand's eastern city of Christchurch on Friday, leaving 50 killed and dozens injured.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the shooting a terrorist act, saying it was the country's "darkest day.


A total of four people were detained in the wake of the attack, including the 28-year-old suspected shooter, Australian national Brenton Harrison Tarrant. On Saturday, a court in New Zealand ruled to remand the suspected shooter in custody until April 5.

Police outside the Al Noor mosque continued to sweep the street for evidence on Sunday, marking up cars where bullets may have hit or ricocheted.

Meanwhile, workers at a Christchurch cemetery continue the daunting task of digging graves for those killed.
