Wellington, – A woman has been arrested after the office of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was attacked with a sword on Thursday.
Police said a 57-year-old was arrested in connection with the incident at Ardern’s Auckland office.
“The woman is currently assisting police with our inquiries into the matter and we are not currently seeking (sic) anyone else,” a police spokesperson said.
