CThe Australian white supremacist who murdered 51 Muslims in last year’s New Zealand mosques shooting showed no emotion as his sentencing hearing opened Monday with horrific details of an atrocity prosecutor said was meticulously planned to inflict maximum casualties. Brenton Tarrant wanted “to have shot more people than he did”, the court was told at the start of the four-day sentencing, held amid tight security and in front of bereaved families and wounded survivors.

The court heard how the heavily-armed Tarrant opened fire on men, women, and children as he live-streamed the attack on social media, ignoring pleas for help, and driving over one body as he moved from one mosque to the next.
Tarrant has pleaded guilty to 51 charges of murder, 40 of attempted murder, and one of terrorism over the attacks on two mosques in Christchurch in March last year.
