Eight other Bangladeshis were in hospital with gunshots, said Shafiqur Rahman Bhuiyan, Bangladesh’s honorary consul in Auckland, citing local residents. “Many of the Bangladeshis went to Al Noor mosque to attend Friday prayers. “At least 10 persons were hospitalised and two of them died later.”Dr Samad, a sexagenarian Bangladeshi agriculturalist, was among the dead. The third cricket test between Bangladesh and New Zealand due on Saturday at Hagley Oval in Christchurch has been cancelled following the shooting. Bangladesh is contacting the New Zealand government through another high commission, as Bangladesh does not have one there, he said.
