Trial of accused Christchurch mosque shooter may get delayed

The trial of the culprit accused of murdering 51 people at two New Zealand mosques may get delayed by several weeks in order to avoid a clash with the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Lawyers for accused gunman Brenton Tarrant have also asked if the venue for the trial could be shifted from Christchurch to Auckland where Tarrant is now being held at a maximum-security prison. The next hearing is on October 3.
