New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern stated on Monday that gun law reforms would be announced in 10 days.
"Within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer… We have made a decision as a Cabinet, we are unified", she stressed.
Commenting on the statement, Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, whose New Zealand First party has previously opposed the reforms, stated he backed the decision.
"The reality is that after one pm on Friday our world changed forever and so will our laws", he noted.
According to Facebook, the social network removed about 1.5 million video clips depicting the deadly shootings at the mosques over the first 24 hours.
