뉴질랜드 총리 "내각, 총기법 강화에 원칙적 합의"
Over in New Zealand, the death toll from Friday's deadly shooting is now reported to be at least 50.
Authorities are working to identify the victims.
The country's prime minister has also pushed for new gun laws.
Cha Sang-mi has the latest.
In the wake of the Christchurch terror attack that took 50 lives, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said her cabinet was "completely unified" in reforming its gun laws.
"The terror attack in Christchurch on Friday was the worst act of terrorism on our shoes. It was, in fact, one of the worst globally in recent times. It has exposed a range of weaknesses in New Zealand's gun laws. The clear lesson from history around the world, is that to make our community safer the time to act is now."
During a cabinet meeting on Monday, Ardern said the government decided to take the rest of the week to hammer out the changes "in principle".
She said gun law reforms will be announced within "10 days of this horrific act of terrorism".
This comes after the death toll rose to 50 after officials found another body at the Al Noor mosque, where most of the victims were killed.
50 others were also wounded in the massacre at two mosques in the city of Christchurch.
Many others were wounded with over 30 still in hospital and a dozen in critical condition.
28-year-old Australian citizen Brenton Harrison Tarrant, was identified as the shooter and charged with murder on Saturday.
More charges are likely, with another court date set for next month.
The attack was live-streamed the attack on social media and a 74-page manifesto filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas was released just before the attack.
Three others were also arrested, but officials said they weren't involved in Friday's attack.
Officials believe Tarrant acted alone.
Meanwhile, authorities are rushing to identify the 50 people killed in the shooting.
Islamic tradition calls for a person to be buried as soon as possible after death - ideally within 24 hours.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said authorities had started returning identified bodies to families, and all bodies will be returned by Wednesday.
