NZ remembers victims of 2019 mosque attack

Wellington, March 15 ( /Xinhua) New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Tuesday remembered the deceased in the March 15 terrorist attacks on the third anniversary of the mosque shootings. “We will always remember and acknowledge the 51 shaheed who died as a result of the terrorist attack on 15 March. One way their memories are honored is through the work that is taking place to make our country a better home for all who live here,” Ardern said in a statement. Ardern said just 10 days after the attack, a Royal Commission of Inquiry was established, providing 44 recommendations to ensure that New Zealand becomes a diverse, safe and inclusive country. Work also continues in other areas, including the reform of gun licensing, she added. /XINHUA PRT
