The NZ Government is now in a position to state the reason government buildings were closed today. There was specific intelligence on actions by some individuals which suggested a repeat of what happened in Sydney was planned for Wellington.
The intelligence was confirmed, and three men have been questioned. There is no longer a known threat within New Zealand, but the intelligence gathered has been germane to the investigation in Sydney. More precise details can not be given at this stage, without compromising operations underway.
All public buildings will reopen as normal tomorrow.
