New Zealand mosque shooter charged with terrorism




The man accused of carrying out a mass shooting at a New Zealand mosque faces new charges, including one count of engaging in a terrorist act, according to law enforcement officials.


New Zealand police have charged Brenton Tarrant with one act of carrying out a terrorist act. One murder charge and two additional attempted murder charges have also been filed.


The 28-year-old Australian man went on a shooting rampage that left 51 people dead in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on March 15.


Tarrant is now facing 92 charges – 51 charges of murder, 40 of attempted murder, and one terrorism charge.


He is alleged to have penned a 74-page neo-fascist manifesto, titled "The Great Replacement" where he delves into what had inspired him to carry out the shootings and vows "revenge" against Muslim "invaders." His weapons bore neo-Nazi inscriptions and slogans, names of extremists, as well as historic figures who waged wars against Muslims.
