New Zealand pledges gun control

Facebook pulls 1.5 million mass murder videos

The proposed changes, to be announced at a future date, were spurred by Friday's Christchurch terror attacks, in which a shooter used multiple weapons, including military-style semi-automatic ones, to open fire on worshippers at two mosques, killing 50.

"That doesn't mean there weren't possibly other people in support, and that continues to form a very, very important part of our investigation".

As the bodies were being readied for return to the families on Monday for burial, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said her cabinet had decided unanimously to tighten gun laws, with details to be announced within a week.

The social news site said it had also taken down posts that linked to the video or which showed the attack.

"We believe absolutely there was only one attacker responsible for this".

The store used a police-verified online sales and delivery process for the purchases, Tipple said.

The Australian charged with murder in the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques plans to represent himself and appears "rational", his court-appointed lawyer told the Agence France-Presse on Monday, March 18.

Boeing to upgrade stall prevention on 737 MAX
With airlines scrambling to re-book passengers on different planes, Niemczyk recommended travellers stay patient. The announcement of the 737 MAX 8 ban in the USA came as several of the planes were still in the air.

Tipple said he supported Ardern's call for gun law reforms as the Christchurch shootings had raised legitimate concerns.

Tarrant had recently lived in Dunedin, some 350 kilometres from Christchurch.

The owner of Gun City, a gun shop in New Zealand, said he sold weapons to the attacker.

"The reality is that after 1.00 p.m. on Friday, our world changed forever and so will our laws", Jacinda Ardern said at a press conference, aired by state-run Television New Zealand. Tens of thousands of weapons were handed in as laws were enacted to make it much tougher to own firearms.

"Anywhere you are, you can just pray anywhere", Saiyad Raza, who had travelled from Auckland to bury his cousin who died in the shootings, said.

His store has been criticized, in the wake of the shootings, for leaving out a roadside advertising billboard that shows a parent helping children with rifle target practice.

Calling for the establishment of a national gun registry and a ban on the kind of semi-automatic weapons used by the killer, Cahill said there are now around 240,000 licensed firearm owners in New Zealand.

Boeing in crisis with worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets
Federation Aviation Administration has affirmed the planes' airworthiness and that investigations were ongoing. Lion Air now operates 10 Max 8 jets, part of a then-record $22 billion order from Boeing made in 2011.

Ardern was joined by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in expressing doubts that current rules go far enough.

The Association of New Zealand Advertisers and the Commercial Communications Council put out a joint statement on Monday asking firms to consider sending a similar message to social media platforms. "We detected nothing extraordinary about this licence holder", he told reporters.

Local Maori leaders held a cleansing ceremony outside the Linwood Mosque in Christchurch where eight people were killed on Friday.

Iranian-American journalist and commentator Negar Mortazavi praised Ardern for wearing a headscarf, which she said was "a sign of respect" to the grieving Muslim community.

Authorities say they hope to release all the bodies by Wednesday.

"The process has been highly emotional and stressful for all.as in accordance with Islamic faith the families have wanted the bodies to be returned as soon as possible", he said.

Facebook and Instagram are down for users across the globe
