Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both mosques, while hundreds more gathered at an official area set up for people to pay their respects in the city's botanic gardens near the hospital where dozens of people are being treated for injuries.
Wearing a white prison suit, Tarrant appeared handcuffed and barefoot.
Police continued to sweep for evidence outside the Al Noor mosque, where a lone gunman killed 41 people at 1:45 p.m. local time on Friday, live-streaming his barbarous crimes in ghastly detail. One victim died in hospital.
"Syed Moazzam Shah, Minister Political, Pakistan High Commission in New Zealand, Cell +64 21 779 495 is our focal point". So I think it's really important to bring your little ones. A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for the attack.
The massacre rocked a small, peaceful nation where such events are extremely rare.
Rules in New Zealand require gun owners to be licensed, but unlike neighboring Australia, laws do not require all weapons to be registered, giving authorities poor oversight of the country's firearms, according to GunPolicy.org.
Another victim of the Christchurch mosque attacks tried to wrestle the gunman's weapon off him in a desperate bid to save others, it has emerged. With a grim expression, she said the country seems to have been targeted because of its welcoming and tolerance.
The audio recording of Ardern's press conference was published by New Zealand Herald. "We were chosen for the very fact that we are none of these things". Together we will defeat those who seek to destroy our values, our way of life and seek to divide us.

Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both mosques in Christchurch, which is still rebuilding after a devastating natural disaster in 2011 that killed nearly 200 people.
Pacific Islands Forum Chair and president of Nauru Baron Waqa expressed his "deepest condolences" to the people and government of New Zealand on what he called a sad day for Christchurch and a sad day for the region. "Our city has changed forever today", Mayor Lianne Dalziel said in a statement. None of those arrested had a criminal history or were on watchlists in New Zealand or Australia.
Police said three people were in custody. Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have now been found and they have been disarmed. "I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand perhaps that's a case, I don't know enough about it yet". "We are part of the New Zealand community".
Indonesia's President Joko Widodo condemned the attacks, in which an Indonesian father and son were among those wounded. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families".
A video of one of the shootings was live streamed on Facebook by a man identifying himself as Brenton Tarrant.
"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".
"We are happy and grateful that the police are taking preventative steps, proactively coming forward to help us ... it's more of a reassurance to the community that we're looking forward".
Twitter and Google, which owns YouTube, say they're working to remove any video of the shootings from their sites, as well. The AR-15 was used at Port Arthur, as well as a number of high-profile mass shootings in the United States. "When you see this type of violence you can feel so alone".
