The death toll following the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday rose to 50 on Sunday after police discovered another victim. Police have still yet to release an official list of names of the deceased, though some identities have been made known. The lone suspect in the shootings, a 28-year-old Australian named Brenton Tarrant, will be tried in New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Sunday, though she is seeking advice on whether Tarrant should be extradited to Australia. He appeared in court on Saturday and was charged with murder. Police say he will face additional charges. Ardern also said on Sunday that her government would discuss changes to New Zealand's gun regulation laws on Monday.
