New Zealand mosque shootings kill 49
The Red Cross website has listed a growing number of people who were caught up in the shootings.
Survivors can register that they are alive to reassure relatives, while those looking for someone can record them as missing. Those missing have been listed as originating from countries including Somalia, Jordan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. The Pakistan Association of New Zealand (PANZ) has posted names on Facebook of members who are missing. It has set up an "emergency operating cell" to support families. The Bangladesh High Commission in Canberra, Australia, advised Bangladeshi citizens living in New Zealand to "keep calm, avoid places of congregation and to follow instructions from the police".
