At least 49 people were killed and 20 injured Friday in armed assaults by a suspected white nationalist on two crowded Christchurch mosques, in one of the deadliest attacks in New Zealand's history.

Police took three men and a woman into custody after the shootings, which shocked people across the nation of 5 million people. One of the suspects was later charged with murder.

Authorities have not specified who they detained, but said none had been on any watch list. 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 the attack.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the shooting as "one of New Zealand's darkest days," and added that the attack had been "well planned."
