Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has sent his condolences to the victims of the mass shooting at the two mosques in Christchurch.
Bainimarama says as news of a mass shooting at mosques in Christchurch unfolds, Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters in New Zealand ‑ a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking and almost beyond comprehension.
Bainimarama says across all religions, our houses of worship are a source of refuge, of prayer, and of love and to see such a heinous and hate filled act occur in what should be places of peace is the darkest of evils.
He says the Fijian people stand with our Pacific family in this time of suffering and sadness, and we condemn all forms of hatred and terror.
The Prime Minister says Fiji will be working closely with authorities in New Zealand to monitor the welfare of Fijians in Christchurch, and will provide updates as they are made available.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
