Death toll in New Zealand shooting rises to 50

This is a Haka being performed outside the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch.

41 people were killed here in Friday's (March 15) attack, and the emotional Maori wardance paid tribute to those lost as mourners silently stood by.

Two days after its deadliest peacetime mass killing, New Zealand is still reeling.

The death toll continued to rise Sunday (March 17) with police discovering another body at one of the mosques.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND POLICE COMMISSIONER, MIKE BUSH, SAYING: "As of last night, we were able to take all of the victims from both of those scenes, and in doing so we have located a further victim." And at Christchurch hospital, more than a dozen people are still in critical condition including a child.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CHRISTCHURCH HOSPITAL HEAD OF SURGERY GREG ROBERTSON SAYING: (ANSWERING QUESTION ON HOSPITAL STAFF REACTION) "Horror, stunned, anger, those are the words that I've sort of had related to me at this point." Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern embraced mourners at a mosque in Wellington on Sunday and laid a floral tribute for the shooting victims. She's described the attack as an act of terror.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER JACINDA ARDERN SAYING: "This is not New Zealand." Australian Brenton Tarrant, a suspected white supremacist, has been charged with murder.

He did not have a criminal history and was not on any watchlists in New Zealand or Australia.

Ardern says Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who allegedly used five weapons, including semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns which had been modified.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER JACINDA ARDERN, SAYING: "Undoubtedly New Zealanders will question how someone could have come to have been in a position of weapons of this nature." She told reporters on Saturday (March 16) that New Zealand's gun laws would change and that she's considering a ban on semi-automatic weapons.
