Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has strongly condemned the terror attacks at two mosques in New Zealand which left 40 people, including two Bangladeshis, dead.

Sheikh Hasina offered deep condolences in a message sent to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Friday, reports UNB.

Terror attacks on two mosques during Friday prayers killed 40 people and injured at least 20 others. Ardern said it is "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

The Masjid al Noor in central Christchurch was filled with worshippers when the attack took place, as was the second mosque in suburban Linwood.
