The accused shooter in the New Zealand mosque attacks sent Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern his 74-page diatribe against foreign “invaders” minutes before he launched the assault that killed 50 worshippers.
Talking to reporters at Parliament’s Beehive Theatrette on Sunday, Ardern said her office and others were emailed the gunman’s so-called manifesto nine minutes before the attacks began on Friday, but there wasn’t enough time to take action to stop the massacre.
“It did not include a location. It did not include specific details… If we could have [stopped it], we absolutely would have,” she told reporters.
