CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (Reuters) - 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.

New Zealand authorities are racing to identify the 50 people killed in a massacre at two mosques so their families can bury them in accordance with Muslim tradition.

CHRISTCHURCH , New Zealand — Abdul Aziz was praying with his four sons in the Linwood Mosque when he heard the gunshots. Rather than run from the noise, he ran toward it, grabbed the first thing he could find — a credit card machine — and flung it at the attacker .

Defense counsel did not respond immediately to a request for comment about why they asked for a change of venue.

A lone gunman armed with semi-automatic weapons attacked Muslims attending Friday prayers in Christchurch on New Zealand's South Island on March 15, killing 51 people in the country's worst peace-time mass shooting. The attacker broadcast the shooting live on Facebook.

Tarrant, 29, has pleaded not guilty to all 92 charges against him.

Norway mosque shooter allegedly posted to 8chan before attack He reportedly attempted to live-stream the attack on Facebook , but was unable to do so. Following the New Zealand attack, Facebook and YouTube were forced to remove millions of copies of the shooter’s video, and Facebook implemented new restrictions on who would be permitted to post live video to the platform. The company indicated that it would apply a “one-strike” policy for users who violated its community standards. It’s not immediately clear if these restrictions prevented today’s shooter from streaming the incident, and Facebook did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment.

The man accused of committing the Christchurch terror attack has denied all charges and will go to trial in 2020. Relatives of the victims of the Christchurch mosque shooting were in court at an earlier appearance of the alleged gunman.

At least 49 people were killed and 20 seriously injured in mass shootings at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch Friday, in a carefully planned and unprecedented atrocity that shocked the usually peaceful nation.

The suspected white supremacist is in custody at a high- security prison in Auckland, about a 90-minute flight from Christchurch.

The court hearing was attended by around 40 members of the public, including survivors of the attack, although there were fewer than at previous court appearances.

Prosecution lawyers said they were making inquiries about the possibility of delaying the trial, which has been set down for May 4, by three or four weeks.

The trial date set down in June has been criticized for coinciding with the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims will be fasting.
