New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern announced on Sunday, March 24, that a national remembrance service will be held in Christchurch on Friday, March 29, to honor the victims of the recent attacks in the city. The service will start at 10:00 (local time) at Hagley Park. Similar events may also take place across the country on Friday. Crowded conditions and heightened security measures are likely around the service.
On March 15, an anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim terrorist attacked two mosques in Christchurch, killing at least 50 people.
Individuals in Christchurch are advised to keep abreast of the situation, anticipate heightened security measures and localized transportation disruptions, and remain aware of the sensitive mourning period.
