Some of the world’s most deadly sharpshooters were in Christchurch when New Zealand’s worst ever terror attack unfolded on Friday, with NZSAS taking to the streets to help hunt the rampaging mosque shooter.
Snipers from the New Zealand military, as well as professional snipers from Australia and Asian countries, had been at the Defence Force shooting range at West Melton, 25kms west of the city, the Herald has been told.
When the massacre unfolded, they were sprung into action and understood to have been granted special powers to take up arms in order to protect the public.
NZSAS soldiers were photographed with weapons and balaclavas masking their face near the Al Noor Mosque by Hagley Park where a gunman stormed Friday prayer and shot dead more than 40 people.
One photograph, which has appeared on social media, appears to show an NZSAS soldier with an army sniper rifle or designated marksman weapon outside the Deans Ave mosque.
Others responded to a callout at Papanui High School which was feared to have been under attack too.
Heavily-armed masked officers were seen travelling in civilian rental vehicles with police on Friday afternoon.
New Zealand Police special tactics group (STG) officers were also on the frontline.'
