A white supremacist who killed 51 Muslim worshippers in New Zealand’s deadliest shooting has been sentenced to life without parole.
It’s the longest prison term handed out in New Zealand’s legal history, and a penalty never before used in the country.
29-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant initially denied all charges against him but later admitted to 51 counts of murder, 40 of attempted murder and one charge of committing a terrorist act during the 2019 shooting rampage at two Christchurch mosques which he livestreamed on Facebook.
