"This was received by over 30 recipients nine minutes before guns were fired".

Within two minutes of its receipt, Ms Ardern said the email - which she confirmed she had read parts of - was forwarded by her office to parliamentary security. She said that by the time a police plan was in place, the 911 number was already buzzing as shots had been fired.

In emotional scenes, Ardern earlier met mourning members of the Muslim community in Wellington.

Anguished relatives were anxiously waiting on Sunday for authorities to release the remains of those who were killed in massacres at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, while authorities announced the death toll from the racist attacks had risen to 50.

Pakistan's foreign ministry spokesman says three more Pakistanis have been identified among those killed in the attacks on two mosques in New Zealand.

"As soon as New Zealanders hear that someone was legally able to acquire, as I'm advised, those weapons and carry out this event, that will raise enormous questions with our gun laws, and that is why we will respond swiftly", she explained.

There will likely be additional charges, reported CBC News, but the police have yet to release details of what they may be. All injured are undergoing treatment at Christchurch Hospital.

"Many of the people require multiple trips to the theatre to deal with the complex series of injuries they have", said Christchurch Hospital's Chief of Surgery Greg Robertson.

"We struggling with it as much as everyone else".

"This is not something that we expected to see in our environment", he told reporters. Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday wrote to his New Zealand counterpart expressing his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.

Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian citizen, appeared in a Christchurch District Court Saturday. He will be in custody until April 5, according to the High Court in Christchurch.

"We have to be absolutely clear on cause of death and confirm their identity before that can happen", he said. The kind of leader we need here in America.

Tarrant was also purportedly inspired to commit the mosque shootings by Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Oslo in 2011. Police with gloves and metal detectors combed the street and footpath.

"At just that moment, there was one young guy who usually takes care of the mosque and helps with parking and other stuff, so (the man) saw an opportunity and he pounced over to him and grabbed his gun".

Police then rammed the gunman's vehicle and arrested him. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all said they had taken steps to remove copies of the videos.

A series of vigils have now been scheduled around the country, while flowers were being left at cordons near the attack sites in Christchurch.

The judge briefed the media before the hearing, saying videos and photographs were only released by approved New Zealand media outlets including TVNZ and RNZ.

Tarrant was arrested in a auto, which police said was carrying improvised explosive devices, 36 minutes after they were first called.

A third man - aged 18 - has also been charged, but is not believed to have been directly involved in the attacks.

Australian police say the family of Tarrant is helping their investigation.
