New Zealand shooting: Jacinda Ardern announces royal commission into attack

People were asking how the attack was able to take place, including how the alleged gunman obtained the weapons, the role of social media and the role of agencies, she said.

Ms Ardern was asked about her decision to don a black headscarf as she comforted victims" families - an image that has since become "iconic'.

"I want recommendations on how any such attack in the future could be stopped", she said.

Ardern said the cabinet agreed on Monday a royal commission of inquiry "will look at what could have or should have been done to prevent the attack".

The boy in the video says "To be honest with you, what brought me here it's you".

"We are absolutely family and we have felt that support acutely", she said.

"It was originally meant to be a longer visit, including a business delegation, but under the circumstances that did not seem appropriate to be away for longer", she told reporters. "But I've always been a person inclined to feel things quite deeply".

"I'm the last one that anyone should worry about right now", said Ardern.

'My job is to make people feel safe, the idea that people now do not I find deeply distressing and it's my job to bring that sense of security back'.

His first funeral prayers were offered on March 21 in New Zealand while other eight Pakistanis were laid to rest in New Zealand on March 22. "That's the bigger project." .

At the press conference announcing the inquiry, she also said she would travel to China at the end of the week to meet with President Xi Jinping. But they do not point it out in an attempt to blame.

"It is important that no stone is left unturned to get to the bottom of how this act of terrorism occurred and what, if any, opportunities we had to stop it".

The prime minister then acknowledged there are "pockets of ideologies" that go against New Zealand's beliefs and the country "utterly reject" them.

In his speech Aly called out controversial Queensland Senator Fraser Anning, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton and Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the latter whose office threatened to sue Aly over his statements and later denied his party had a problem with Islam in a 30-minute live interview that aired on Thursday. And the message I've been sharing with every global leader is our job is to share love and support for our Muslim communities around the world'.
