Photos: New Zealand rocked by mass shooting

Mass shootings at two mosques full of worshippers attending Friday prayers killed 49 people on what the prime minister called ‘‘one of New Zealand’s darkest days,’’ as authorities charged one person, detained three others and defused explosive devices in what appeared to be a carefully planned racist attack.

Here are photos from the scene in Christchurch.
