A day after  perhaps the worst ever terror attack in New Zealand  where a gunman on a shooting spree at two mosques killed 49 people and injured 48 people , a  28-year-old suspect, identified as Brenton Harrison Tarrant according to media reports  appeared before the court on murder charges.  He was remanded in custody without plea until April 5.

Throughout the hearing, Brenton Tarrant, who had a cut on his upper lip, remained silent and looked at the media persons in the public gallery.

The terror attack suspect, who live-streamed for about 17 minutes his rampage through two mosques, is an Australian-born citizen and is a resident of Dunedin, situated around 360 km south of Christchurch.

The suspect appeared before a Christchurch court on murder charges, in white prison clothing, barefoot and handcuffed. Flanked by two police officers, he smirked when media persons photographed him during the hearing and was seen making the white power gesture, New Zealand Herald reported.
