Brenton Tarrant, the accused Christchurch shooter, makes a white power sign during his court appearance AFPHe flashed a white power sign as he appeared in a New Zealand court SaturdayA right-wing extremist who filmed himself on a rampage that left 49 mosque-goers dead flashed a white power sign as he appeared in a New Zealand court Saturday charged with murder. Flanked by armed police he flashed an upside-down "okay" signal, a symbol used by white power groups across the globe. The attack on the Al Noor and Linwood mosques has been labeled terrorism by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and is thought to be the deadliest attack directed against Muslims in the West in modern times. Ardern said she would be reviewing events leading up to the attack to see how the suspect went unnoticed by authorities. "The individual charged with murder had not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police, for extremism," she said.
