A four-year-old girl has spoken for the first time since she was shot in the Christchurch terror attack.
The child, who has court-ordered name suppression, was shot three times while walking towards the Deans Ave mosque with her father on March 15.
She suffered brain damage, and was transported to Starship Hospital.

After remaining unresponsive for over a month, she has finally begun to speak.
On Tuesday, a post to her father's Facebook page from his family announced the little girl was making progress.
"[The child] is speaking! (Slowly) English and Arabic!" read the post.
"Thank you for all your prayers. Now we need to get body control and eyesight back."
A Givealiitle page set up for the family has reached $58,569.
The page says the child is making daily progress, and recognises her mother's voice.
