New Zealand mosque attacker changes plea to guiltyBrenton Tarrant, 29, a white supremacist, killed 51 worshipers at Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, during Friday prayers on March 15 last year.

He opened fire in the packed Al Noor Mosque, then traveled across town to continue the carnage in the suburban Linwood Mosque, while live-streaming his actions on social media.

Shortly before the attack began, an anonymous post on the discussion site 8chan, known for a wide range of content, including hate speech, said the writer was going to “carry out an attack against the invaders” and included links to a Facebook live stream, in which the footage of the shooting and a manifesto appeared.
