International Desk: The “terrorist” who killed numerous worshippers in attacks at two mosques in New Zealand’s Christchurch today is a right-wing extremist with Australian citizenship.

Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison said that the shooter is an Australian-born citizen and “an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist”, an agency reports.

Meanwhile, a man who has claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in a website explaining his identity and reasons for his actions.

He said he was a 28-year-old white Australian.

The manifesto was later removed from the site.
