New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern ordered, Monday, a top-level inquiry into the Christchurch terror attacks that killed 50 people and injured others, BBC reports.

Ardern announced that a royal commission, the highest independent inquiry in New Zealand, will have to determine how a single terrorist carried the country’s bloodiest terror attacks, on March the 15th.

«It is important that no stone is left unturned to get to how this act of terrorism occurred and how we could have stopped it», Ardern said. «One question we need to answer is whether or not we could or should have known more», the Prime Minister added.

The commission is expected to release a «comprehensive» report to answer questions surrounding the terror attacks.

For the record, the New Zealand Prime Minister took firm decisions after the terrorist attacks. Last week, she ordered a ban on assault rifles and semi-automatics, in addition to weapons used in the attack.
