New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Friday that a #stabbing incident at a supermarket in #Auckland that left six people injured was a “terrorist attack” carried out by a “violent extremist.”

“What happened today was despicable, it was hateful, it was wrong,” she said, describing the attacker as a Sri Lankan national who arrived in New Zealand in 2011.

The man, who had been a “person of interest” for about five years, was killed within 60 seconds of beginning the attack, she said, adding that he had been inspired by ISIL.
