New Zealand police found another body at one of the two mosques that were attacked in Christchurch, raising the death toll in the shootings to 50. New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush said that 36 people remain hospitalized and that two of them are in critical condition, AP reported.

The additional victim was discovered while bodies were being removed from the mosques. Media reported that forensic officers from across the country are flying into Christchurch to help with the identification process.

The man suspected of carrying out the attacks has been charged with murder but is set to return to court in April when he will face additional
