Members of one of New Zealand's most notorious street gangs have been captured consoling each other after the Christchurch terror attack as Prime Minister Jacinda Arden met families of the victims.

Authorities have confirmed that 49 people died in the mosque massacre on Friday while at least 40 people were treated in hospital for their injuries - with 11 still critical.

Mourners have gathered across New Zealand and the globe to honour the worshippers, who were defenceless when they were allegedly shot at by Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant.

Members of the Mongrel Mob descended at Hagley College, in Christchurch, where Jacinda Arden arrived at about 1pm to greet hundreds of survivors, family members and mourners.
