The end of August saw Brenton Harrison Tarrant sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for the Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand.

On 15th March 2019, Tarrant entered two mosques during Friday prayer. He killed a total of 51 people, injuring another 40. In one case he deliberately killed a three-year-old child as he clung to the leg of his father in fear.

Described as a white supremacist, Tarrant live streamed the first shooting on Facebook and remained emotionless throughout court proceedings.
