Amman, The main suspect in the terrorist attack that killed 49 people in shootings at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday has appeared in court on a single murder charge.
Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, was brought to the dock in a white prison shirt and handcuffs. Further charges are expected to be made against him.
New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern said Tarrant had five guns and a firearms licence, adding: “Our gun laws will change.”
Two others are in custody. None of those detained had a criminal record.
Tarrant, who stood silently during the brief hearing, was remanded in custody without plea and is due to appear in court again on 5 April.
Ardern called the attack “an act of terror”.
