Christchurch mosque attacks: Murder-accused namedby RNZ
The man charged with murder following yesterday's terrorist attacks in Christchurch has appeared in court.
He did not seek name suppression and has been remanded in custody.
Tarrant was handcuffed and appeared calm in court.
His appearance was over in five minutes, with the judge considering media applications from outlets from around the world. Pictures were allowed to be taken of the accused but Tarrant's face had to be pixelated.
Police said while he is currently facing only one charge, further charges will be laid.
The case will go to the High Court.
The court was closed to the public during the appearance due to the heightened security risk and media were walked in six at a time.
A large media presence is at the court.
