New Zealand PM announces royal commission inquiry into Christchurch attack

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Monday (March 25) a royal commission inquiry into the events leading up to a March 15 attack on two mosques in Christchurch that killed 50 people, including into the country's intelligence services.

"While New Zealanders and Muslim communities around the world are both grieving and showing compassion for one another, they are also quite rightly asking questions on how this terror attack was able to happen here.

This includes questions around the accessibility of semi automatic weapons, the role social media has played generally and the focus of the intelligence and security services," she told reporters at Parliament House in the capital, Wellington.

"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." She said a royal commission, which are independent inquiries and are usually reserved for matters of the greatest public importance, was an appropriate response to the attack.
