New Zealand's Royal Commission inquiry into deadly shooting attacks on two Christchurch mosques would report back to the government by December 10, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Monday.

The inquiry would look into the suspected gunman's activities, use of social media and international connections, as well as whether there was "inappropriate" priority setting in state counter terrorism resources, Ardern said in a statement.
A suspected white supremacist has been charged with 50 counts of murder over the Christchurch shootings on March 15 and will next appear in court in June. Ardern has said the man had not been on any watch lists in New Zealand or Australia.
