Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will land in Paris tonight New Zealand time where she is set to host the Christchurch Call summit alongside the French President Emmanuel Macron.

The meeting ‑ the first of its kind ‑ will be held on Wednesday with world leaders and technology companies in an attempt to eliminate social media being used to promote and organise terrorism.

The global call for action comes after 51 people died in Christchurch as the result of a terrorist attack that was livestreamed on Facebook.

Radio NZ reports Ardern watched the video of the accused gunman killing people in two mosques almost two months ago.

She said 8000 people who saw the video in the aftermath contacted mental health support lines in New Zealand after seeing it.
