In Christchurch, New Zealand, 49 are dead and at least 20 are wounded after a shooting at a mosque, BBC News reports.

  Four individuals were found and arrested, with one being charged for murder and appearing in court on Sunday. The shooting was the deadliest in New Zealand’s history, attacking those attending the mosque for Friday prayers.

  The shooting was live-streamed on Facebook Live by one of the gunmen. Before the shooting, the gunman, a 28 year old Australian citizen, published a manifesto outlining his beliefs. This is believed to be a hate crime.
