New Zealand is reeling after an “unprecedented” terrorist attack in Christchurch , in which an Australian gunman targeted two mosques and killed at A New Zealand Herald reporter was told by witnesses that Tarrant left a mosque after the shooting and “actively” pursued a child down the street.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand officials admitted Wednesday that they made a mistake by allowing the man accused of killing 51 people at two Christchurch mosques to send a hand-written letter from his prison cell . The six-page letter from Brenton Tarrant was posted this

Tarrant who is currently awaiting trial for 51 murders, 40 attempted murders, and engaging in a terrorist act, has been cited as an 'inspiration' by other alleged killers including those in El Paso and Oslo.

The letter appears to be written in pencil on a small notepad and is addressed to 'Alan' in Russia.

Much of it appears to be relatively innocuous, discussing a one-month trip Tarrant says he took to Russia in 2015.

But the letter also warns that a 'great conflict' is coming and uses language that could be construed as a call to arms.

Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis said in statement that he didn't believe the prison system should have allowed Tarrant to send the letter.

'I have made myself clear that this cannot happen again,' Davis said.

But Davis also said that all New Zealand prisoners have rights that include the ability to send and receive mail.

He said the prison system can withhold correspondence and withheld some other letters Tarrant had attempted to send or receive.

'We have never had to manage a prisoner like this before - and I have asked questions around whether our laws are now fit for purpose and asked for advice on what changes we may now need to make,' Davis said.

In the letter, dated July 4, Tarrant thanks 'Alan' for postage stamps he apparently sent, saying they're the only two pieces of colour in an otherwise grey cell and adds that he'll have to hide them from the guards.

Man accused of New Zealand mosque attack seeks to move trial from Christchurch

Man accused of New Zealand mosque attack seeks to move trial from Christchurch Lawyers for the man accused of shootings at two mosques in New Zealand that killed 51 people in March have asked for the trial to be moved from the southern city of Christchurch, where the attacks took place, a judge said on Thursday. A hearing on the request to move the trial to Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, will be held on Oct. 3 and the defendant, Australian Brenton Tarrant, would be held in custody until then, High Court Justice Cameron Mander said at a hearing. Defense counsel did not respond immediately to a request for comment about why they asked for a change of venue. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

Police in New Zealand say 49 people have been killed at two mosques when at least one gunman opened fire on worshippers. Reports have suggested that those inside the mosques included refugees and migrants. Murder charge. Four people – three men and one woman – were taken into

Tarrant cites Plato and other philosophers and writers as inspiration for his views, and says he 'cannot go into any great detail about regrets or feelings as the guards will confiscate my letter if I do' and use it as evidence.

Opposition spokesman David Bennett said Davis needed to demand immediate answers as to how an inflammatory letter could be sent from inside a maximum security prison.

'This man is accused of carrying out one of the most heinous crimes in New Zealand history,' Bennett said in a statement. 'New Zealanders will be horrified that Corrections allowed him to send a letter which includes a call to action and has subsequently been posted online.'

The Corrections Department, which oversees prisons, said the law only allows a prison director to withhold a prisoner's mail in a 'very limited' range of circumstances.

'On review, we acknowledge that this letter should have been withheld,' the department said in a statement. 'We have made changes to the management of this prisoner's mail to ensure that our robust processes are as effective as we need them to be.'

Before the March 15 shootings, Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian white supremacist, posted a 74-page manifesto on the website 8chan in which he outlined his racist views and his beliefs that immigrants were invaders who would replace the white race.

8chan, seen as a more radical offshoot of 4chan, was effectively knocked offline this month after two companies cut off vital technical services in response to claims that the gunman who killed 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, posted a racist anti-Latino screed on the site just before the Aug. 3 killings.

Like the Texas gunman, a Norwegian man suspected of killing his stepsister and then storming an Oslo mosque with guns this month is also believed to have found inspiration in Tarrant's actions.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has vowed never to utter Tarrant's name in order to deny him the publicity she says he craves, making Tarrant's letter even more of an embarrassment for the government.

'I think every New Zealander would have an expectation that this individual should not be able to share his hateful message from behind bars,' she told media on the island nation of Tuvalu, where she is traveling to attend a meeting of Pacific leaders.

It's not the first misstep by New Zealand authorities in the case.

Police initially filed a single representative murder charge against Tarrant but mistakenly named somebody who was still alive before later amending the charge.

Tarrant has pleaded not guilty to terrorism, murder and attempted murder charges following the mosque attacks.

He remains in jail ahead of his trial, which has been scheduled for next May.
