'When I speak, he shall be nameless': PM Ardern voices New Zealand's grief

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER JACINDA ARDERN, SAYING: "He is a terrorist.

He is a criminal.

He is an extremist.

But he will, when I speak, be nameless." New Zealand's prime minister led a condolence speech in parliament on Tuesday (March 19) urging people not to give the suspect of the Christchurch shootings noteriety.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER JACINDA ARDERN, SAYING: "Speak the names of those who were lost, rather than name of the man who took them." 50 people were killed in an attack at two mosques during Friday prayers last week (March 15).

The victims were largely Muslim migrants and refugees.

Tributes to those killed have continued to pour in to Christchurch.

New Zealand immigration said scores of visas have been granted for travelling family members to attend the funerals.

And teams of volunteers were flown in on Tuesday to assist with the Muslim rituals for their burial.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER JACINDA ARDERN, SAYING: "What I can assure you is, our gun laws will change" Ardern has promised action in response to the attack.

That includes an overhaul of New Zealand's gun laws - and an inquiry into what government agencies knew - could or should have known - about the alleged gunman, and whether the attack was preventable.

The U.S. and Australia will also be working with local investigators.

Australian Brenton Tarrant - a suspected white supremacist - was charged with murder on Saturday (March 16).

He's due back in court on April 5th, where police say he'll likely face more charges.
