CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart issued the following statement:

"The heinous acts of mass and brutal violence that targeted mosques in New Zealand are troubling and repugnant on many levels.  My heart is broken for the victims of this senseless event. Violence against any people on the basis of religion or, for that matter, any basis, are acts that deserve our unified condemnation.  Today, we are all New Zealanders.”
