All victims have been removed from mosque and are currently being identified. Once the police know the victims, the next of kin process will begin, something authorities said will have "international aspects" to it. 

"Police understands the religious duty of the Islamic faith to bury the deceased as soon as possible, and is working closely with the Chief Coroner to do everything possible to expedite the process," New Zealand police said on Twitter.

Those who were evacuated from their homes have been able to return, although a police presence continues. 

The New Zealand Red Cross has activated their Restoring Family Links website, where families can register a missing family member in Christchurch.
