New Zealand suspect emailed PM Ardern minutes before attack

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

It’s emerged that the suspect in the Christchurch mosque shootings emailed his far-right ‘manifesto’ to New Zealand’s Prime Minister less than ten minutes before the attack.

Jacinda Ardern said, however, that nothing in the message could have helped stop the killings.

She’s promised to change the country’s gun laws in response to the terror attack – as questions continue to be asked as to why the gunman was not known to the authorities.
