At least 49 people have been killed, and 48 others injured, in mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand.

Police have arrested three people in connection with the terror attack, charging one of them, a man in his late-20s with murder.

Police said they had defused a number of explosive devices attached to vehicles stopped after the massacre in what appeared to be a carefully planned attack.

The two attacks took place at mosques in Christchurch, the deadliest of which was apparently live-streamed on Facebook from the account of Australian Brenton Tarrant.

The attacks initially began at 1.40pm local time (12.40am GMT).

Forty-one people were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch.

Seven people were killed at the Linwood Masjid Mosque in a suburb of the city, while another person died in hospital.
