Teenager Accused Of Publishing Photo of New Zealand Mosque - TNBC USA

An 18-year-old boy has appeared in a court of New Zealand, accused of distributing the live stream videos of a deadly mass taken at Christchurch’s Al Noor mosque.

The name of the teenager was suppressed by the judge, who was also accused of publishing a picture of the mosque with the message, “target acquired” and for inciting violence.

He would face a maximum of 14-years in prison for each charge, claims the prosecutors.

A judge didn’t granted him bail and is due back in court on April 8.

The hearing came after a 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant has reportedly carried out the shootings at Linwood Mosque and Al Moor Mosque in Christchurch on Friday, in which more than 50 people died and dozens were injured.

Investigation team reported that the teenager was so far and not believed to be directly involved in his attacks.

District Court Judge Stephen O’Driscoll said that the details related to the charges were suppressed as well.

More details related to the case are awaited.
