relatives of victims and survivors attend court session for alleged Christchurch mosque gunman

Around two dozen family members of victims and some survivors of the attacks were present in a New Zealand court where suspected white supremacist Australian Brenton Tarrant was charged with an additional 49 counts of murder following his arrest after mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch last month.

Tarrant, 28, has been moved to New Zealand’s only maximum-security prison in Auckland and appeared at the Christchurch High Court through a video link. The High Court judge overseeing the appearance also ordered Tarrant, who was not required to submit a plea, to undergo a mental assessment to determine whether he was fit to stand trial.
