Breaking News: Terrorist of ISIS killed after stabbing six people in New Zeland

New Zealand police have shot and killed an ISIS supporter who injured at least six people in a supermarket "terrorist attack" in the Auckland suburb of New Lynn today (on Friday), authorities say.


“This afternoon at approximately 2:40 p.m., a violent extremist undertook a terrorist attack,” said Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in a news conference Friday afternoon. “This was a violent attack, it was senseless, and I am so sorry it happened.”
Ardern added that the man was a Sri Lankan national, a “supporter of ISIS ideology,” and a “known security threat.” He was under constant surveillance by multiple government agencies, and security personnel were able to shoot and kill him within 60 seconds from the start of the attack, she said.
The attacker obtained a knife within the store and used it to stab six shoppers before police shot him, said New Zealand Police Commissioner Andrew Coster. The man died at the scene.
