Pretoria News - - PROTEST -

WELLINGTON: New Zealand’s Prime Min­is­ter Jacinda Ardern shared a call for change yes­ter­day from the imams from the two mosques tar­geted by a white su­prem­a­cist in Christchur­ch a year ear­lier.

A na­tional memo­rial event sched­uled to mark the an­niver­sary of the deadly at­tack was can­celled amid fears of the new coro­n­avirus.

“Our deep wish is that the March 15 flood of sup­port builds into some­thing last­ing; some­thing that ben­e­fits ev­ery­one,” the state­ment said.
