Wellington - New Zealand Prime Minister John Key spoke on Saturday of his huge relief on hearing that daughter Stephie, an art student in Paris, was safe following the terrorist attacks.

He told the New Zealand Herald that his wife Bronagh had been in touch with Stephie and she was now at her home and safe.

"But obviously like any parent or anyone that has a loved one in Paris it is a worrying time."

Key expressed his condolences to the people and government of France.

"Our hearts go out to those involved and our thoughts are with them and their families."

The Sky Tower in Auckland is to be lit up Saturday night in the colours of the French flag to show solidarity with the people of France.
