NZ cabinet backs action on gun laws

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said that New Zealand’s cabinet has backed gun law changes “in principle” after the Christchurch shootings.

Fifty people were killed and dozens wounded in attacks at two mosques on Friday.

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, has appeared in court and been charged with murder.

The attacks sparked calls for gun law reform, with Ms Ardern saying soon after that “our gun laws will change”.
