We are continuing to make enquiries after yesterday’s tragic events in Christchurch.
As the Prime Minister stated yesterday, this has been designated a terrorist attack.
49 people have died and 42 are being treated for injuries. Two of those injured are critical and this includes a four-year-old child who is being transported to Starship Hospital this morning.
41 people were killed at the Deans Avenue mosque, and seven at the Linwood Avenue mosque. One has since died in hospital.
