Two Pakistanis were already confirmed to have been killed in the New Zealand attack.

New Zealand authorities informed that Naeem Rashid, hailing from Abbottabad, Pakistan was killed along with his 18-year-old son Talha Naeem in the mosque attack.

Naeem’s family said that the New Zealand authorities have formally called his wife to inform about their death.
