New Zealand Mosque Shooting: What Is Known About The Suspects!

Published

on

New Zealand

The Christchurch mosque attacks were live-streamed on the internet by a man posting online under the name Brenton Tarrant. He said he was Australian.

Distressing footage shows him firing indiscriminately at men, women and children at close range inside the Al Noor mosque.

The individual previously posted a rambling and expletive-filled document, espousing violent right-wing ideology.

Reaction to the attacks
A day later, the main suspect, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, appeared in court in Christchurch, charged with murder.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the suspect had “travelled around the world with sporadic periods of time spent in New Zealand” and that he was currently living in Dunedin, south of Christchurch.

“I would not describe him as a long-term resident,” she said

“The offender was in possession of a gun licence. I’m advised that this was acquired in November of 2017,” Ms Ardern said.

She said New Zealand intelligence services had been stepping up investigations into far-right extremists, but added: “The individual charged with murder had not come to the attention of the intelligence community nor the police for extremism.”

Tarrant appeared in court in Christchurch in a white prison uniform. He was remanded in custody with no bail application.

Attack streamed live
The man in the footage equipped himself with what appears to be a head-mounted camera to live-stream the attack in central Christchurch.

The streams were broadcast online, including briefly on Facebook, showing the violence in graphic detail.

A song which played in the suspect’s car is known as a marching anthem for Serbian nationalist paramilitary units known as Chetniks during the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

It praises Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, who was convicted of genocide and war crimes.

The names of men convicted of killing Muslims and migrants are written on the suspect’s weaponry.

One item had the words “For Rotherham” written on it, a reference to a child abuse scandal in the UK, while other wording referenced historical battles between European countries and the Ottoman Empire.

Online activity
Australian media reported that Brenton Tarrant was originally from Grafton, a town 600km (370 miles) north of Sydney, and had previously worked at a fitness facility.

“He never showed any extremist views or any crazy behaviour,” his former boss, Tracey Gray, told Seven News.

The 16,500-word document he posted is entitled The Great Replacement – a phrase that originated in France and has become a rallying cry for European anti-immigration extremists.

In it, the man says he began planning an attack after visiting Europe in 2017 and being angered by events there.

Specifically, he references a lorry attack carried out by an Islamic State sympathiser in Sweden, France’s decision to elect the moderate Emmanuel Macron as president, and ethnic diversity in France.

Despite insisting that he is not motivated by fame, he acknowledges that he intends to survive the attack, and hopes it will spread fear.

He chose the Al Noor mosque as his target three months ago, the document says.

The central tenet of the conspiracy is that “European peoples” are dying out and being “replaced” by immigrants with a different, inferior and dangerous culture, says the BBC’s Dominic Casciani.

This is basically a code for hatred or fear of Muslims – part of the theory is that states and corporations are encouraging “white genocide” by pushing up immigration rates to keep global capitalism going, says our correspondent.

What about the others in custody?
Four people were arrested in the aftermath of the attack – three men and a woman, who was subsequently released without charge.

Police say they do not believe they were connected to the attack.

Of those, two remain in custody:

a man who apparently went to help carrying a rifle, who has been charged with a firearms offence
an 18-year-old, who will appear in court on Monday, but whose involvement is said to be “tangential”
Prime Minister Ardern said none of those in custody had been on active security watch lists in New Zealand or Australia.

“I have asked our agencies this morning to work swiftly on assessing whether there was any activity on social media or otherwise, that should have triggered a response,” the prime minister said.

Pakistani Doctor Accused Of Infecting Almost 500 Kids With HIV By Reusing Syringes

Published

A doctor has been arrested and is under investigation for allegedly infecting hundreds of children in a single Pakistani city with HIV by reusing syringes.

Muzaffar Ghangro, who has AIDs, was accused by at least 10 families of infecting their children with HIV in Ratodero, in Sindh province, Pakistan. But Ghangro has denied the charges, saying he didn’t do anything intentionally.

In the past month, more than 600 people, most of them children between one month and 15 years old, have been diagnosed with HIV in the area in what has become an HIV epidemic.

According to reports from NPR and the Associated Press, parents in April began to notice lasting fevers in their children and took them to a nearby medical center for testing. By around April 24, 15 children ages 2 to 8 had tested positive for HIV.

Local officials then set up a camp where children and their parents could be screened for the virus and the results were alarming.

As of mid-May, 410 children and 100 adults in Larkana, a city in Pakistan’s Sindh province, had tested positive for HIV, the Associated Press reported. Those numbers have since climbed to 494 children and 113 adults, according to NPR.

The recent outbreak is now also being linked to major failures in the health care system, according to NPR. Most doctors in the town are untrained and many practice folk medicine, and diseases are often spread through the reuse of syringes, piercings done with unsanitary equipment, and a lack of standards for blood transfusions, the BBC reported.

Theresa May Weeps As She Resigns As UK Prime Minister

Published

Theresa May

UK prime minister, Theresa May has said she will be stepping down as leader of her Conservative Party and then as Britain’s prime minister, after repeatedly failing to win Parliament’s approval for a deal to withdraw the country from the European Union.

In an emotional statement, she said she had done her best to deliver Brexit and it was a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to do so.

“I feel as certain today as I did three years ago that in a democracy if you give people a choice you have a duty to implement what they decide. I have done my best to do that,” she added. “I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back that deal. Sadly, I have not been able to do so.”

Mrs. May will stand down formally on June 7 and leave when the successor is chosen.

She would continue to serve as PM while a Conservative leadership contest takes place.

I Stopped The Demons Imported By Rev Owusu Bempah To Cause A Stampede At The VGMA : Prophet Cosmos Walker

Prophet Cosmos Walker

Popular Ghanaian prophet known as Prophet Cosmos Walker Affran has stated that the chaos that happened on the night of the VGMA was going to be a national disaster if not for his timely intervention.

According to the prophet, he arrested some demons which were imported into Ghana by Rev Owusu Bempah from hell to cause a stampede at the event.

He added that Rev Owusu Bempah imported the demons to aid the ruling New Patriotic Pary (NPP) to fulfil their campaign promise and also cause a lot of bloodsheds.

Prophet Cosmos Walker disclosed that he has the demons in his custody and will spiritually deport them to hell if Rev Owusu Bempah fails to do so.

He wrote this on his Facebook page; “Ghana would have been in a state of mourning, if I had not stop the demon been imported into Ghana from Hell by Prophet Owusu Bampah, what happened at Vgma was the plan of the demon to cause national disaster through stampe in the event to claim lives and human blood he wanted from npp government, like what happened “may 9 football match ” which a lot of people lost their lives through stampe, God show to me what Prophet Owusu Bampah and npp government have done which will take innocent lives, so when God showed to me what is going to happen at vgma, I decided to stop the demon to cause stampe in the event through confusion and if I had stated clearly in my early posts which I made last weekend about the plan of this demon towards the vgma, people will not patronise the vgma show and I have ended up destroying some one awards show, which they have invested millions into the event so I decided to do some spiritual work stop the national disaster which the demon would have caused. and that why I posted it on my page last weekend. Still the demon is in my spiritual custody and am not ready to release the demon because if I do something bad which is national disaster will happen to Ghana and human blood will be taken by this demon, so am still waiting for Prophet Owusu Bampah to come and spiritually hand over this demon to him and so he can return the demon to Hell where he brought the demon from and since I have given him time, If he refuses then I will deport the demon to Hell again by myself, Ghana is not ready for this evil act. God is the Greatest”.
