An official source at the Saudi Foreign Ministry announced that Saudi Arabia condemned in the strongest terms the shooting of two mosques during Friday prayers in Christchurch، southern New Zealand، which led to dozens of deaths and injuries.

A gunman opened fire on Friday prayers at a mosque in New Zealand killing many worshippers and forcing the city of Christchurch into lockdown، in what looked set to be the country’s worst ever mass shooting، Reuters reported.

Police said multiple fatalities had occurred at two mosques، but it was unclear how many attackers were involved.

Video footage widely circulated on social media، apparently taken by a gunman and posted online live as the attack unfolded، showed him driving to one mosque، entering it and shooting randomly at people inside.
