New Zealand Terror Attack: Shooting suspect charged with murder for attack on two mosques

Australian-born 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant appeared in Court on a murder charge on Saturday.

The terror attack took place in Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and the Linwood Mosque in the city’s suburbs.

Australia started deploying extra Police force at major events and mosques following the Friday’s Christchurch terrorist attack.

Victoria has been put on high alert as it would be hosting the Formula 1 Grand prix and a community open day in Mosques statewide on the weekend.

“You will see a lot more police out and about this weekend,” Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Wendy Steendam was quoted as saying by the media.

Mosques across Victoria have planned a community open day for this Sunday and were keen for them to go ahead, Steendam said while asking people to go and support the Muslim communities, and maintaining vigilance.

Twenty-eight-year-old Brenton Tarrant appeared in court on Saturday charged with murder, after a terror attack on two Christchurch mosques that left 49 dead.

Wearing handcuffs and a white prison shirt, the Australian-born former fitness instructor and self-professed fascist sat impassively as the judge read the charge against him.

He did not request bail and was taken into custody until his next court appearance scheduled for 5 April.

Five guns were used during 15 March’s mass murder attack. The accused received his gun licence in 2017. “He travelled to a range of countries.” said New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. She has flagged a change to New Zealand’s gun laws, according to AFP.

“The accused man, Brenton Tarrant, was not a resident of Christchurch, he lived in Dunedin,” she added.
