The title molecule, C9H5Br2N, is almost planar, with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.027 angstrom. The dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 1.5 (3)degrees. In the crystal, pi-pi stacking interactions are present between the pyridine and benzene rings of adjacent molecules [centroid-centroid distances = 3.634 (4) angstrom], and short Br center dot center dot center dot Br contacts [3.4443 (13) angstrom] occur.
