New Zealand PM apologizes over backpacker's killing

(CNN)British backpacker Grace Millane should have been safe on her trip to New Zealand, a place that prides itself on manaakitanga, the country's prime minister said Jacinda Ardern invoked manaakitanga -- a word from the Maori, New Zealand's indigenous Polynesian people, meaning hospitality -- in delivering an apology to the 22-year-old's family.

She was speaking during her weekly post-Cabinet news conference, Radio New Zealand reported.

"From the Kiwis I have spoken to, there is this overwhelming sense of shame that this has happened in our country, a place that prides itself on its hospitality, on its manaakitanga, especially to those who are visiting our shores," Ardern said.
