Christchurch shootings: Suspect Brenton Tarrant appears in court

The suspect made a sign to the camera during his appearance in the Christchurch District Court on Saturday

New Zealand cops later apprehended Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, over the Friday killings.

A Whitehall source told the publication that MI5 was reviewing the 74-page manifesto - they are also probing any links to far-right extremists in the UK.

Tarrant was believed to have met extreme right-wing groups during a visit to Europe two years ago, security sources told United Kingdom paper The Independent.

After his father's death in 2010 from cancer, he invested in cryptocurrency, quit his gym job and took a tour through North Korea, Pakistan, Turkey, Eastern Europe, France and elsewhere.

"Tarrant may have been a lone shooter when he slaughtered 50 people at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday, but he was not a 'lone wolf.' He was part of a much wider movement that is every bit as extensive as Al Qaeda was when it attacked the United States in 2001, and potentially much more risky to the future of Western democracies", he continued.

Turkey has also confirmed it is looking at the man's visits to that country, and Bulgarian authorities said he had visited Bulgaria previous year.

Security intelligence officers are piecing together a picture of Tarrant's background that includes travelling the world and sporadically spending time in Dunedin.

The terrorist even live-streamed the first shooting episode at the Masjid Al Noor mosque where he claimed at least 30 lives.

Last year, Tarrant posted a message on Facebook, referring to a trip to Pakistan, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
