One NZ shooting suspect is Australian, says PM Morrison

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) One of four people detained in New Zealand after mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch is Australian, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Friday (March 15).

"I can confirm that the individual who was taken into custody, I have been advised, is an Australian-born citizen," he told reporters in Sydney.

"As family members with our New Zealand cousins today, we grieve, we are shocked, we are appalled, we are outraged, and we stand here and condemn absolutely the attack that occurred today by an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist," the prime minister added.

New Zealand media reported that between nine and 27 people were killed, but the death toll could not be confirmed.
