There will be an official two minutes of silence on Friday to mark a week since the Christchurch terror attacks, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced.
A Muslim call to prayer will also be played on TVNZ and RNZ on Friday.
Ardern said many Kiwis were keen to express their grief a week on from the horrific attack, where 50 people were killed.
“To acknowledge this there will be two minutes of silence on Friday. We will also broadcast nationally via TVNZ and RNZ.”
Further details would be released ahead of Friday.
