A New Zealand gunman who killed more than 40 people at a mosque in Christchurch videotaped himself while on a killing spree and livestreamed the attack on Facebook.
Before the massacre, he seemed to be having fun in his car as he captured everything on camera from his guns to his ammunition.
There were seven more people killed at another mosque, authorities said, adding that many people were injured.
A white male in his late 20s has been apprehended by the police and would be charged on Saturday.
The death toll stood at 49 dead at the last update.
The White House has condemned the massacre in Christchurch where the attack took place.
“The United States strongly condemns the attack in Christchurch. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate,” said White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders.
Investigation is still ongoing but New Zealand Prime Minister described it as a terrorist attack.
