The man accused of killing 51 people in the Christchurch mosques attack has been charged with terrorism, New Zealand police have said, the BBC reports. 

Brenton Tarrant was charged with "engaging in a terrorist act", police said in a statement on Tuesday.

He is already facing charges of murder and 40 of attempted murder following the attack on two mosques in the South Island city on 15 March.

The Australian is next due in court in June.

Fifty people lost their lives in the shootings at two mosques in the city. One died in hospital later.
