The revelation comes as relatives of those murdered in New Zealand continued to endure an agonising wait for confirmation of the identities of those killed in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The death toll of the Christchurch terror attacks has risen to 50, and two injured victims remained in critical condition, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said Sunday morning.

The statement added that a range of activities must be completed before names can be released publicly, "this includes next of kin notifications, which, in many cases, will have global aspects to them".

Ardern said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who allegedly used five weapons, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns, which had been modified.

Police Deputy Commissioner Wally Haumaha said the attacks were "totally unprecedented in our history" but that his officers were "working very hard" to support the families.

The attacks in two mosques in central Christchurch killed at least 49 people and injured 48 others.

Ardern also said she wanted to talk to Facebook, as footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" denouncing immigrants as "invaders" was posted online via links to related social media accounts minutes before the violence began.

Tarrant on Saturday was charged with only one count of murder, though Prime Minister Ardern assured the public that more charges will be added as the judicial process continues.

"I want to finish by saying that while the nation grapples with a form of grief and anger that we have not experienced before, we are seeking answers".

Questions have been raised about why Tarrant had not appeared on a watchlist of New Zealand or Australian security agencies.

"Had it provided details that could have been acted on immediately it would have been, but unfortunately there were no such details in the email".

Thirty-four people were in Christchurch Hospital, with 12 in intensive care, while one child was moved to a dedicated children's hospital in Auckland. He also apparently smirked at photographers, according to the New Zealand Herald. He was hoping semi-automatics were not banned, but he and his shooting friends were buying the weapons, which can cost anything from NZ$600 (US$400) upwards. "The people of New Zealand are in our thoughts and prayers".

"Our gun laws will change".

New Zealand has in the past tried to tighten firearm laws, but a strong gun lobby and culture of hunting has stymied such efforts.

Vehicles are prohibited, but people can walk closer to the mosques where the shooting happened on Friday.

He also reached out to the Muslim community in Christchurch and in New Zealand. "My message was sympathy and love for all Muslim communities", she said she told him.

Pence also affirmed USA cooperation in ensuring all the perpetrators were brought to justice. For many New Zealand was their choice, a place they actively came to and committed themselves to.

Officials in New Zealand have not yet released the names of those killed or wounded, but Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Friday that many of those "directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand" or even refugees.
