Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.

New Zealand Police Minister Mike Bush confirmed that three men and one woman were in police custody in relation to the multiple shootings at two separate mosques in central Christchurch. He will appear in court on Saturday.

The police, he said, are not looking for other suspects.

Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner Neil Basu said: "Today we will be stepping up reassurance patrols around mosques and increasing engagement with communities of all faith, giving advice on how people and places can protect themselves".

In the aftermath, the country's threat level was raised from low to high, police warned Muslims against going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand, and the national airline cancelled several flights in and out of Christchurch, a city of almost 400,000.

- 42 people have been injured, two of them critically, including a four year old child.

There was a heavy police presence at the hospital where families of the injured had gathered.

In 2010 and 2011 the city suffered a series of devastating earthquakes, with the most destructive at 6.3 magnitude, which killed almost 200 people and destroyed thousands of buildings.

New Zealand's prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, said many of those caught up in the shootings may have been migrants and refugees.

"For those who are watching at home tonight and questioning this, we were chosen coz we are not racist, extremist".

"You may have chosen us - we utterly reject and condemn you".

Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonisation of Muslims.

Moments before, his spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: "We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate".

- She said the shootings appeared to have been a well-planned "terrorist attack".

It appears a police auto had rammed into it as it is on two wheels. But the social media giant said that it had removed the video from its platform.

There are now four individuals who have been apprehended, but three are connected to this attack and are now in custody, one of which has publicly stated that they were Australian born.

"If your child was attending the climate change protest in Cathedral Square and you want to check if they are in the Civic Offices, please call the Council Contact Centre on 03-941-8999", Christchurch City Council said.

The visiting Bangladesh cricket team was arriving for prayers at one of the mosques when the shooting started but all members were safe, a team coach told Reuters.

It was not immediately clear if the attacks at the two mosques were carried out by the same man.

- Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said one of those arrested was an Australian citizen and described the suspected attacker as an "extremist right-wing violent terrorist".

Pakistan's prime minister Imran Khan and other Islamic leaders pointed to the bloodbath and other such attacks as evidence of rising hostility toward Muslims.
