Jacinda Ardern consoles a Muslim woman after the shooting in Christchurch which killed 50 people

New Zealand's prime minister has vowed not to name the man accused of shooting 50 people dead in a terror attack publicity.

Thirty people remain in hospital after the shootings at two mosques in Christchurch - nine of them in a critical condition.

A 28-year-old Australian man has been charged with murder after appearing in court at the weekend.

Jacinda Ardern has been speaking in New Zealand's parliament four days after the atrocity:

"He sought many things from his act of terror, but one was notoriety," she said.

"He is a terrorist, he is a criminal, he is an extremist, but he will when I speak, be nameless."
