New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has vowed never to say the name of the alleged author of the Friday shooting, which killed 50 people in Christchurch mosque, speaking in Wellington on Tuesday.
"He sought many things in his act of terror, but one was notoriety, and that is why you will never hear me mention his name," said Ardern during a speech commemorating the victims at the New Zealand parliament.
Speaking a few words of Arabic, she said, "We can and we will surround you with aroha (compassion), manaakitanga (process of showing respect, generosity and care for others), and all that makes us, us. Our hearts are heavy but our spirit is strong."
A total of 50 people were killed in the shootings and a further 50 were wounded in what was New Zealand's worst attack.
The main suspect, a 28-year-old Australian, appeared in court on Saturday charged with murder.
