Police have confirmed there have been ‘multiple fatalities’ after two gunmen stormed two mosques in New Zealand.

The terrorists live-streamed the sickening attack, with the first happening at Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch.

Hundreds were packed inside the holy building and the attack happened just after prayer had started.

Police say at least one suspect is in custody.

As the situation was unfolding, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said: “A serious and evolving situation is occurring in Christchurch with an active shooter.

“Police are responding with its full capability to manage the situation, but the risk environment remains extremely high.

“Police recommend that residents across Christchurch remain off the streets and indoors until further notice. Christchurch schools will be locked down until further notice.

“Police thanks the public for their cooperation and will provide further updates to keep residents informed.”

Mohan Ibrahim told the New Zealand Herald: “At first we thought it was an electric shock but then all these people started running.

“I still have friends inside.

“I have been calling my friends but there are many I haven’t heard from. I am scared for my friends lives.”

More to come.
