40 people have been killed, and at least 20 others seriously injured, in mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand.

Police have arrested four people in connection with the terror attack and have also defused explosive devices in what appeared to be a carefully planned incident.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Friday was ‘one of New Zealand’s darkest days’ as she confirmed the number of dead and injured.

Ms Ardern said the events in Christchurch represented ‘an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence’ and acknowledged many of those affected may be migrants and refugees.

Police arrested three men and a woman after the shootings, but have given no further details.

A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for his actions.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that one of the four people arrested was an Australian-born citizen.
