ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Friday has confirmed that four Pakistani nationals were injured, while five were still missing after the horrific terrorist attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The wounded Pakistani nationals were being treated at hospitals, said Dr Mohammad Faisal, a spokesman for the Foreign Office of Pakistan.

The deputy high commissioner said that the government had shut all the mosques in New Zealand after the Christchurch attacks.

Attacks on two Christchurch mosques left at least 49 dead Friday, with one gunman — identified as an Australian extremist — apparently livestreaming the assault that triggered the lockdown of the New Zealand city.
