Multiple casualties reported in shooting at mosque in New Zealand`s Christchurch

'Shots fired' near mosque in New Zealand

The Bangladesh cricket team "just escaped" after shots were fired at a Christchurch mosque near to where the team was due to play the final Test match of their tour of New Zealand.

ABC News quoted eyewitness reports that up to 30 people were either dead or injured, but stressed that the figures were unconfirmed.

The Bangladesh cricket team was going to Friday prayers at the mosque, the Masjid Al Noor, when the shooting occurred but all members were safe, a team coach told Reuters.

The Guardian went on to report that Christchurch Hospital was on lockdown - that hospital is located approximately two kilometres from the mosque. They lost their one-day global series 3-0 and have also lost the three-Test series after New Zealand claimed victory in the opening two matches.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush said in a statement that "all Christchurch schools have been placed into lockdown".

Parts of the central Christchurch area have been locked down.
