‘Escaped mosque attack by minutes’: Bangladesh cricket manager recounts horror
Manager of the Bangladesh cricket team, Khaled Mashud, recounts how the team narrowly escaped the terror attack in New Zealand’s Christchurch. The Bangladesh team was on its way to one of the mosques when the shooting began. The team manager recalls how the team was approximately only 50 yards away from the mosque premises when the terrorists opened fire. The attack left at least 49 dead and has been described as ‘one of the darkest days’ for New Zealand by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
