CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) – Pakistan will observe a day of mourning Monday for victims of the New Zealand mosque attacks and honor a man who died after trying to tackle the gunman.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Sunday that flags would fly at half-staff.

Nine Pakistanis were among the 50 people killed when an immigrant-hating white nationalist opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch during Friday prayers.
