 MFA: No Azerbaijanis among victims of New Zealand mosque shootings

Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that preliminary information indicates there are no Azerbaijanis among the dead and injured following the shootings on two mosques in New Zealand.

In this regard, the Azerbaijani Embassy in Australia, which is also accredited in New Zealand, is in constant contact with relevant bodies of this country and diaspora representatives there, the ministry told AzVision.az.

Forty people were killed and 20 were injured in the shootings in mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday. The police arrested four people - three men and one woman - on charges of organizing the shooting.
