New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says she won’t use the name of an Australian man behind the Christchurch terror attack in a bid to deny him notoriety.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern addressed parliament in Wellington on Tuesday, paying tribute to the victims of the Christchurch terror attacks.
Ms Ardern said she will not be naming the Australian gunman and told others in New Zealand to do the same.
“He may have sought notoriety, but we in New Zealand will give him nothing, not even his name,” she said.
“He is a terrorist. He is a criminal. He is an extremist. But he will, when I speak, be nameless.”
