New Zealand shooting: man shot dead by police after ‘terrorist attack’ in Auckland that injured six
The Guardian says an attack at a New Zealand supermarket was “a terrorist attack” by a “violent extremist” who follows Islamic State ideology and who had been under heavy surveillance by police, prime minister Jacinda Ardern has said.
A man was shot dead on Friday afternoon by police after entering a West Auckland supermarket and stabbing at least six people, who are now in hospital.
The alleged terrorist was a Sri Lankan national who arrived in New Zealand in 2011 and became a person of national security interest from 2016, authorities said. Ardern said his ideology was IS-inspired, but he was a “lone-wolf”.
