WELLINGTON, March 25 (Xinhua) -- A Royal Commission of Inquiry will look into the Christchurch terrorist attacks, New Zealand Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern announced on Monday.
It would investigate the specific circumstances leading up to the Christchurch mosques terror attacks on March 15.
Speaking after a weekly Cabinet meeting, Ardern acknowledged questions around how the attacks were able to take place, including how the gunman obtained the weapons, the role of social media and the role of agencies, should be answered.
The investigation will establish whether security agencies were focused on the right direction and whether there were any clues that were missed.
A royal commission inquiry is the most serious response to an issue available to the New Zealand Government. It investigates matters of great importance and difficulty.
The terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch killed at least 50 people and injured 50 others.
The terror attacks have led to changes of the gun law in the country.
