Tarrant, handcuffed and wearing a white prison suit, stood silently in the Christchurch District Court where he was remanded without a plea.

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

Bush said police did not believe that three other people arrested on Friday were involved in the attack.

But despite the horror of the Christchurch shootings, some local residents who AFP spoke with Saturday warned against any drastic moves on gun control.

It was by far the deadliest shooting in modern New Zealand history.

Twelve operating theatres worked through the night on the more than 40 people wounded, said hospital authorities.

They included Asif Shaikh, 44, who said he was among more than 100 people at the Al Noor mosque when the attacker came in.

Armed police were deployed at several locations in all cities, unusual in a country where levels of gun violence are low.

Ms Ardern, who arrived in Christchurch Saturday, said the shooter was not on any watchlist and did not have a criminal record. Story continues after video. The news organization reported the manager of a gym where Tarrant was employed said he began traveling overseas in 2011.
