    Teenager charged for live streaming NZ mosque shooting

    An 18-year-old man was denied bail at a court in New Zealand on Monday after he was charged with distributing a live stream of the mass shooting at a mosque last week, the New Zealand Herald reported. The man was arrested on Friday, but police have since said they do not believe he was directly involved in the attacks at two mosques in Christchurch which happened on the same day, in which 50 worshipers were killed. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder for the mosque shootings. Tarrant was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5 where police said he was likely to face more charges.

    Ariana Grande's new leaf ink isn't a 'cover up'

    Ariana Grande has insisted her new leaf tattoo is not a "cover up". The 'Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored' singer had a leafy design added to her 'Always' ink on her ribcage, which she got last June, when she was with her ex-fiance Pete Davidson. The 25-year-old pop superstar went to her regular tattooist Mira Mariah on Sunday to extend the body art, and claimed she was not trying to hide the tattoo, which is thought to have been in the 'SNL' star's handwriting, instead she said the piece is "evolving". Ariana, who kicks off her 'Sweetener World' Tour tonight at the Times Union Center in New York, captioned the post of her new ink on Instagram: "post run thrus, 3 am with @girlknewyork :) not a cover up just evolvin also, our show opens tomorrow.

    Before she was killed in the mosque attacks, she opened 'her home, her heart and her kitchen' to others

    US President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Friday. Scott Brown, the United States' ambassador to New Zealand, has condemned white supremacy and extended his sympathies to Muslim communities worldwide in the wake of Friday's mosque attacks -- but refused to call on President Donald Trump to do the same. "I'm the President's representative here, and I have done it," Brown told Jake Tapper on CNN Sunday. Trump sent his condolences on Twitter after the "horrible" attack. But he later rejected the idea that white nationalism is on the rise, a comment New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she did not agree with. "They have their own opinions, obviously," Brown said of the disagreement.

    New Zealand mosque attack: Who were the victims?

    Apple refreshes iPad lineup, with larger entry-level model

    Apple has unveiled a new iPad that's thinner and slightly larger than its current entry-level tablet. The new iPad Air will cost $499 and sport a screen that measures 10.5 inches diagonally. That compares with the standard, 9.7-inch iPad, which Apple will still sell for $329. Apple has higher-end Pro models starting at $999. The new iPad Air has several features found in older Pro models, but not the latest. For instance, the iPad Air has a home button with a fingerprint sensor, while the latest Pro ditches that to make more room for the screen. Apple is also refreshing its 7.9-inch iPad Mini for the first time in more than three years. In the past, Apple has sometimes used older chips in the

    Singaporean couple jailed for 'worst of its kind' maid abuse

    SINGAPORE: A Singaporean couple was on Monday jailed for abusing a Myanmar maid after the pair force-fed her with a funnel, made her eat her own vomit and threatened to kill her family if she reported the maltreatment. In a case described by Singapore prosecutors as “arguably one of the worst of its kind” in the city-state, the married couple - who were sentenced two years ago over the abuse of another maid - beat and kicked their helper and made her clean the house in her underwear. Moe Moe Than, 32, was also given little food, limited use of the toilet and faced threats that her parents in Myanmar would be killed if she reported the abuse, court documents showed. District Judge Olivia Low on
