ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Foreign Office in Islamabad said four Pakistanis were injured in the New Zealand terrorist attack, and another five Pakistanis are "missing".
FO spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said all four injured Pakistanis received bullet injuries, but their condition wasn't immediately known.
The Pakistan High Commission in New Zealand is making efforts to locate the missing nationals, the FO spokesperson said. “right-wing extremist” armed with semi-automatic weapons rampaged through two mosques in the quiet New Zealand city of Christchurch during afternoon prayers on Friday, killing 49 worshippers and wounding dozens more.
The attack, thought to be the deadliest against Muslims in the West in modern times, was immediately dubbed terrorism by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, as she guided a shocked nation on one of its “darkest days”.
