Australian Man Appears In Court On Murder Charge After Christchurch Attack

A suspect in the attack, identified in reports as Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, appeared in court on Saturday morning local time.

Brenton Tarrant, in white prison suit, barefooted, handcuffed and flanked by two armed police officers, made a brief appearance in the court for about five minutes. At one point he gazed around at the courtroom, which was packed with media.

Tarrant, who was not granted name suppression, smirked to the camera of the media dock and frequently scanned the court room which was closed to the public.

Mourners place flowers as they pay their respects at a makeshift memorial near the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, Saturday. Neighbouring Australia has virtually banned semi-automatic rifles from private ownership since a lone gunman killed 35 people with assault rifles in 1996.

Mr Taylor, 27, left Aberdeen to travel to New Zealand as part of a trip to see more of the world. They included a two-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl, who is in critical condition.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern arrived at Hagley College in the city to console the families of some of the victims of the shooting.

King Salman described the attack as a "heinous massacre" that "underlines the responsibility of the global community to confront the rhetoric of hatred and terrorism".

An Aberdeen man who fled for his life after chaos erupted all around him in the wake of the New Zealand terrorist attack said he fell into a "complete panic" soon after the shooting began. Worshipper Syed Mazharuddin, who lost two of his friends in the attack, said: "This guy came through the main entrance door".

Facebook said it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced" after being alerted by police.

In online forums, people discussed Muslim food restrictions as they prepared to drop off meals for those affected.

Ardern said she had asked authorities to look into whether there was any activity on social media or elsewhere ahead of the attack that should have triggered a response.
