Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said at least one of the Christchurch attackers is an Australian born citizen.
Speaking at a press conference in Sydney Friday, Morrison condemned the attackers as “extremist right wing, violent terrorists.”
“Australia and New Zealand, we’re not just allies, we’re not just partners, we’re family and as family members with our New Zealand cousins today, we grieve, we are shocked, we’re appalled, we’re outraged,” he said.
