Over 40 Killed In Newzealand Shooting In Mosques:- Over 40 people have been killed in Newzealand in two attacks staged in mosques during the Friday prayers. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said this during a press conference after the incident called it  as one of the darkest days in the history of Newzealand. Four suspects have been taken into custody after the attack in Christchurch. The death toll may even see a rise. Schools across the region have been kept lockdown for several hours and the people have been asked not to step out and stay indoors.

The incident took place at 1.40 PM (8:40pm ET March 14), the cops said. A 17-minute video is floated across social media which is shown to be a part of the attack. The film has been captured from a helmet camera worn by a gunman. The cops urged not to share the video. The Bangladesh cricket team just arrived at the Masjid Al Noor Mosque for prayers when shooting started. They managed to escape unharmed. Some vehicles with bombs have been intercepted in the surrounding regions. The incidents took place in Al Noor Mosque on Deans Avenue and Linwood Mosque in the suburb of Linwood.
