Australian senator egged after racist comments on New Zealand

Senator Fraser Anning drew international condemnation for blaming attack that killed 49 Muslims on immigration.

A far-right Australian senator had to be restrained by security officials after punching a young man protesting his offensive comments about the mosque attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Queensland Senator Fraser Anning drew international condemnation for his efforts to blame the attack on Friday that killed 49 Muslim worshippers on immigration.

Amid the controversy, an unnamed young man slapped an egg on the back of Anning’s head during a news conference in Melbourne on Saturday, prompting the senator to hit him in the face repeatedly before being stopped by what appeared to be a security guard.

In a statement on Friday, Anning had said the attack which killed the worshippers in the southern New Zealand city was the result of Muslim immigration into the country.
