First bodies returned to families after Christchurch attack

(CNN)The bodies of at least six victims of the Christchurch attack were returned to families Tuesday and another 32 people remain in hospital after a 28-year-old Australian gunman opened fire at two mosques last week.

New Zealand Police told CNN in a statement that they were working with families to return their loved ones’ bodies after a coroner had identified 12 victims.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave an emotional speech at her first address to Parliament since the terror attack, praising the “extraordinary courage” demonstrated by mosque worshipers and police during one of the country’s “darkest days.”
