NEW ZEALAND MOSQUE ATTACKER TO FACE 50 MURDER CHARGES

Australia Politics

Police in New Zealand have confirmed that the man arrested over the Christchurch terrorist attacks will face 50 charges of murder and 39 of attempted murder when he appears in court on Friday. Police in a statement said that other charges are still under consideration.

Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, was previously charged with only one murder following the attack which killed more than 50 Muslims.

This came as parliamentarians heard oral submissions on the government’s gun law reform bill, which seeks to ban military-style semi-automatics and assault rifles.
