A New Zealand judge on Friday charged the Australian man accused of carrying out two mosque shootings last month with 50 counts of murder and 39 counts of attempted murder. Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, appeared in court via video from a maximum security prison in Auckland, New Zealand. Tarrant, a white nationalist, is accused of opening fire in two Christchurch mosques on March 15, killing 50 people and leaving 50 others injured. Victims of the attack and their families gathered inside the court for the Friday hearing.
