A murder suspect was to appear in a New Zealand court Saturday morning in connection with the mass shootings in which at least 49 people were killed at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, an unprecedented attack apparently broadcast live for a time on social media.

"We need to stand up and we need to stand together and united".
