MOGADISHU, Somalia – At least three Somali nationals, including a six-year old boy are among 49 people, who were killed in New Zealand shooting at two mosques in Christchurch.

Somali government’s radio confirmed deaths of Somalis, who were lost their lives in the attack.

Meanwhile, New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush says the death toll has increased to 49 in shootings at two mosques.

Bush told a news conference that a man has been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow. He would not say whether the same shooter was responsible for both attacks.

A man who earlier claimed responsibility said he was a 28-year-old Australian and described anti-immigrant motives in a manifesto.
