Five injured in New Zealand supermarket stabbing

Five people have been injured, three critically, after a man went on a stabbing rampage at a supermarket in the New Zealand city of Dunedin.

It’s believed at least two of the injured are staff members of the Countdown Supermarket.

The attack happened around 2.30pm local time with shoppers reporting they were alerted to the chaos by screaming coming from the aisles before people started to run from the store.

Customers reportedly helped tackle the armed man before Police arrived.

At least one person is suffering a wound to the neck and has been rushed to hospital.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said there was noting at this stage that suggested the attack was terror-related.

“Needless to say such an attack is hugely concerning,” Ms Ardern said.

More to come.

The Duke and Duchess continued by saying how “deeply touched” they have been over the past two years to “feel the warmth and support for our family” in honor of Archie’s birthday.

“This year, our world continues to be on the path to recovery from COVID-19. Yet too many families are still struggling with the impact of this pandemic.

“While some places are on the verge of healing, in so many parts of the world, communities continue to suffer.”

The coupled continued by saying “we will not be able to truly recover until everyone, everywhere, has equal access to the vaccine”.

“We are inviting you to contribute whatever you can – if you have the means to do so – to bring vaccines to families in the world’s most vulnerable places.”

“Together, we can uplift, protect, and care for one another.”
