At least 49 people were killed in attacks on two separate mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, that were carried out by a white supremacist on Friday, officials said.

The gunman also published a rambling manifesto filled with white supremacist ravings prior to the attack. In an apparent online post by the suspected shooter, he identifies himself as a supporter of Donald Trump, describes his possible motives, his choice of New Zealand as a target, and his aim to impact the political climate in the United States.

An “attempted abolishment of [gun] rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines,” he wrote.
