49 people were killed and many injured in shooting in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The Bangladesh cricket team, which was scheduled to play the third and final Test against New Zealand on Saturday, had a narrow escape as they were about to pray in the Masjid Al Noor mosque, which is situated near the stadium.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the massacre as one of the "darkest days" of the country.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says 40 people have lost their lives and more than 20 seriously injured in the shootings.
Addressing a media conference, Ms. Ardern says 10 were killed in one mosque, while 30 were shot dead in another mosque.
