Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has sent his condolences to former Fijians and New Zealanders living in Christchurch.

Bainimarama says as news of a mass shooting at the two mosques in Christchurch unfolds, Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters – a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking almost beyond comprehension.
