Eight Pakistanis killed in Christchurch shootings have been laid to rest in New Zealand.
At least 50 people were killed when a man opened fire on two mosques in Christchurch last week. Nine Pakistanis were killed in the attack.
More than 20 family members, who flew from Pakistan, attended the funeral, according to Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal.
The funeral was attended by more than 5,000 people, he said.
