A steady stream of mourners paid tribute Sunday at a makeshift memorial to the 50 people slain by a gunman at two mosques in Christchurch, while dozens of Muslims stood by to bury the dead when authorities finally release the victims' bodies.Islamic law calls for bodies to be cleansed and buried as soon as possible after death, usually within 24 hours.Ardern said the gunman had sent the manifesto to her office email about nine minutes before the attacks, although she hadn't gotten the email directly herself.Bush said at a news conference that another body had been found at Al-Noor Mosque as police finished removing the victims, bringing the number of people killed there to 42 .Another seven people were reportedly killed at Linwood mosque and one more person died later at Christchurch Hospital.The second attack took place at the Linwood mosque about 5 kilometers away.Ardern has said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who legally bought the five guns he used.
