50 people died after a gunman opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand during midday prayers on Friday.

ReutersA New Zealand judge ordered that Tarrant's face be blurred to preserve fair trial rights.

He appeared to have live-streamed the terror attack in Christchurch and outlined his anti-immigrant motives in a manifesto posted online.

"Hi guys how are you".

The majority of victims were migrants or refugees from countries such as Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, Somalia and Afghanistan.

Anyone over 16 can apply for a New Zealand firearms licence, valid for 10 years after completing a safety course and a police background check.

The 81-year-old spoke exclusively to 9News reporter Hannah Sinclair as her grandson remains in custody in New Zealand. Witnesses said victims were shot at close range.

"She came here for the peace.now she is shocked", he said, adding his mother was too afraid to leave her house.

The video of Ardern's press conference in Wellington was published online by local broadcaster.

None of the bodies of the victims were immediately released due to the investigation, leaving families unable to bury their dead within the 24 hours customary in Islam.

The President of French Polynesia, Edouard Fritch sent a message of support to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, following the attack in Christchurch. Armed police were deployed at several locations in all cities, unusual in a country that has had low levels of gun violence.

At least one of the weapons used by Tarrant was reportedly an AR-15 - the same semi-automatic rifle used in a number of mass shootings in the United States, including the 2012 Sandy Hook school killings in CT.

The nation's firearms laws are lax compared to neighbouring Australia, which enacted a strict gun control regime in the wake of a similar massacre in 1996. Story continues after video.

'But the Prime Minister has signaled that we are going to look at that issue [banning semi-automatic weapons]'.

A floral tribute is laying on Deans Avenue in Christchurch after a right-wing extremist killed 49 people in two mosques.

The AR-15 was used at Port Arthur, as well as a number of high-profile mass shootings in the United States.

Unlike the USA, the right to own a firearm is not enshrined in New Zealand's constitution.

"At just that moment, there was one young guy who usually takes care of the mosque and helps with parking and other stuff, so (the man) saw an opportunity and he pounced over to him and grabbed his gun".

Cook Islands prime minister Herny Puna said his country's prayers first and foremost were with the victims of the shooting, "their families, friends and loved ones whe are now faced with the irreconcilable loss of their loved ones".

"I haven't spoken to her directly but she has reached out, [and given] an acknowledgment of what has occurred here in New Zealand".

"This act of terror was brought to our shores and rained down upon us".
