Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old white supremacist obsessed with the Crusades, toured the Continent and came to Britain to stay for up to a fortnight in 2017.

A suspect in the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques on Friday appeared in court on Saturday and was charged with murder.

New Zealand Prime Minsiter Jacinda Ardern said during a visit to Christchurch, NZ on Saturday that the main suspect in the shootings at two mosques in the city had meant to "continue his attack". He killed 41 people at Al Noor, before killing seven at another mosque nearby.

The second attack took place at the Linwood mosque about 5 kilometers (3 miles) away. We wish this did not happen.

Tarrant did not have a criminal history and was not on any watchlists in New Zealand or Australia. A tall, strong man with a ginger beard and tattoos, Anthony says he uses his riflefor "sport".

Another victim was Sheik Moussa, a Somali preacher in Christchurch in his late 70s.

"I think the public should be assured that we train for this, hoping we never, ever have to respond", he said.

Huang Yan, the manager of the Christchurch branch of China's Southern Airlines, told Xinhua the mass shooting would bring negative impact on New Zealand tourism as Christchurch has just been recovered from the aftermath of the 2011 deadly quake.

The violence has also shone a new light on gun control. "His loss will be deeply felt by the team".

The victim can not be named by order of the court.

"First up I said, "No it couldn't be", but then I saw his photo", he said.

"Last night we were able to take all the victims from all scenes", he said.

Most of the victims of the attacks were immigrants from Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, Somalia and Afghanistan.

People have also been laying flowers outside of mosques in other parts of New Zealand in solidarity with the victims and their famlies.
