Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the country's highest form of investigation, a royal commission of inquiry, was appropriate for "matters of the gravest public importance".

Saudi King Salman said, "The heinous massacre of the safe worshipers of mosques in New Zealand is a terrorist act and underlines the responsibility of the worldwide community to confront the rhetoric of hatred and terrorism, which is not recognised by religions or values of coexistence among peoples". She said the exact terms of the inquiry, including its duration, would be finalized over the next two weeks. But questions need to be answered around whether or not this was the activity of an individual that we could or should have known about.

Mr Bridges said the review of security legislation was needed to see if the security agencies needed greater powers.
