The Heat: New Zealand terrorist attack

The Heat

The city of Christchurch, New Zealand, is in mourning after the country’s worst terrorist attack.

Police believe a gunman acted alone when he stormed into two mosques during Friday prayers, killing fifty people. The youngest victim was just 3-years-old.  New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said her government will announce gun law changes in the next week.
