Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday strongly condemned the shooting at two mosques in New Zealand which left multiple people dead.
In a message sent to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the Bangladesh premier offered deep condolences at the deaths of a number of people in the shooting, BSS reports.
An attack on two crowded mosques during Friday prayers left multiple people dead, police said, on what Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days”.
The Masjid al Noor in central Christchurch was filled with worshippers when the attack happened, as was the second mosque in suburban Linwood.
Local media reported at least nine people were dead and the South Island city was placed under lockdown.
