Christchurch terror attack – Police working to identify victims as quickly as possible

Police are acutely aware of frustrations by families associated with the length of time required for the identification process following Friday’s terror attack.

We are doing all we can to undertake this work as quickly as possible and return the victims to their loved ones.

While identification may seem straightforward the reality is much more complex, particularly in a situation like this.

Our absolute priority is to get this right and ensure that no mistakes are made.
