New Zealand PM orders investigation into Mosque Shootings

Intro

Just days after the deadly attack on Muslims at the Christchurch in Zealand, the country’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, has called on an independent judicial inquiry into whether police and intelligence services could have prevented the awful situation.

 

She told reporters; “It is important that no stone is left unturned to get to how this act of terrorism occurred and how we could have stopped it,” she told reporters.

New Zealand’s spy agencies have faced criticism in the wake of the attack for concentrating on the threat from Islamic extremism.

Instead, the victims were all Muslims and the massacre was allegedly carried out by a white supremacist fixated on the belief that there was an Islamist plot to “invade” Western countries.
