In New Zealand, the man accused of massacring Muslim worshipers in the city of Christchurch in March pleaded not guilty Thursday to 51 counts of murder, 40 counts of attempted murder and engaging in a terrorist act. The 28-year-old Australian is an avowed white supremacist who emailed out a racist manifesto minutes before he opened fire with an assault rifle at two mosques, live-streaming his massacre on Facebook. His trial has been set for May of 2020.
