DUBAI – The alleged gunman in the deadly shooting at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand appeared in court on Saturday as the country mourned the victims.
Suspected gunman Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, appeared before the Christchurch District Court on Saturday morning, on the charge of murder.
At least 49 people were killed and 40 injured when a gunman attacked two mosques in Christchurch on Friday.
Tarrant was led into the court while dressed in a white prison outfit and hands handcuffed in front of him.
He did not seek name suppression nor asked for bail when he appeared before Judge Paul Kellar, and could be seen somewhat smirking as the judge read the charge against him.
Tarrant was remanded into custody before a hearing on April 5. GAD/Expat Media
