Party Muthanna al-Samarrai condemned on Friday the terrorist attack against two
mosques in New Zealand, adding that an Iraqi citizen was reportedly injured
during the attack.
News has been circulated reporting that an Iraqi engineer named Adeeb Ahmed Sami was injured while he was with his son in one of the two mosques, Samarrai said.
He called on the Iraqi Foreign Ministry to follow up on the injury of the reported engineer, wishing him speedy recovery.
Forty-nine people were killed in shootings at two mosques in central Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday, in a terrorist attack that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described as “an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.”
