New Zealand's Terror Threat Level Reduced to Medium After Christchurch Attack - Reports

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th April, 2019) New Zealand's terror threat level has been downgraded to medium following a terror attack in Christchurch, local media reported.

Medium is defined as "a terrorist attack is assessed as feasible and could well occur." It is higher than it was before the March 15 attack, according to the Stuff news website.

"While the threat level has been revised to medium, and there is no current specific threat agencies are responding to, people will continue to notice a clear police presence at public events," New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was quoted as saying by Stuff.

The terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch killed 50 people and injured 50 others.
