Thousands attend New Zealand vigil to honour 50 mosque dead

Through her stoic resolve and empathy for the victims, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern became the reluctant face of the terror attack that left 50 Muslim worshipers dead in Christchurch earlier this month.

On Monday, the cabinet had decided it would be a Royal Commission Inquiry, which is "reserved for the most serious matters of public importance", the Department of Internal Affairs said on its website.

Aly asks Ms Ardern about her family and how much time she has been able to spend with them.

Ardern said the commission would look into whether the resources of spies had been directed in the right direction.

He flew to New Zealand last week to meet with the prime minister.

Ardern ruled out New Zealand re-introducing the death penalty for accused gunman Brenton Tarrant, 28, who was arrested minutes after the attack on the mosques and has been charged with murder. We see ourselves as peaceful and inclusive, the act has been so counter to that, but the response ... that's New Zealand.

Ardern said on Sunday that a national remembrance service would be held on March 29 to honor the victims, most of whom were migrants or refugees.

'The values of tolerance and inclusion and peace - those are New Zealand values.
