Brenton Tarrant was charged with one count of murder and appeared at Christchurch district court on Saturday after the rampage during Friday prayers.
Tarrant, he said, had obtained his gun license in November 2017 and purchased his first firearm about a month later.
"The way he presented was rational and someone who was not suffering any mental disability".
"There is a baseline determination not to go down the American road", he said.
But Mr Tipple said none of the weapons were the military-style semi-automatic rifles used during Friday's attack, adding he and staff were disgusted by the shooting. Those agencies include the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service, the Government Communications Security Bureau, police, customs and immigration, she said.Читайте также: Trump Races To Reopen GM Plant Ahead Of Ohio Visit
Thirty people were still being treated at the Christchurch hospital, nine of them in critical condition, said David Meates, CEO of the Canterbury District Health Board.
Ms Ardern said she will not be naming the Australian gunman and told others in New Zealand to do the same. "Gun City did not sell him an MSSA, only A-category firearms", Tipple told a new conference in Christchurch.
"We have made a decision as a cabinet, we are unified", she said, flanked by her coalition partner and deputy prime minister, Winston Peters.
Australia introduced some of the world's toughest gun laws after its worst mass killing, the 1996 Port Arthur massacre in which a lone gunman killed 35 people using a United States staple of mass shootings in that country - the semi-automatic AR-15, the same weapon used in the Christchurch terror attacks. That meant there were different views as to whether they would be washed or not because he said Islamic jurisprudence said martyrs are not to be washed as their blood was witness to their martyrdom.
Bush said he the threat level in New Zealand remained high and New Zealanders would continue to see high vigilance from the police, to ensure everyone in New Zealand feels safe.
Frustration was building among the families of victims as under Islam it is custom to conduct burials within 24 hours, but bodies will not be released until post mortems are carried out. "But some people have said because it was not a battlefield it is okay to wash the body".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
