Four Pakistanis injured, five missing in NZ shootings

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) — Pakistan’s foreign ministry says four Pakistanis were wounded in mass shootings at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal tweeted that five other Pakistani citizens are missing after Friday’s attacks.

He said Pakistani diplomats in New Zealand are in contact with local authorities.

Separately, the ministry said Pakistan views the attacks as an “assault on the values of freedom of conscience and association common to all mankind.”

It asked New Zealand to take immediate action to bring the perpetrators to justice and ensure the safety of the Muslim community.
