New Zealand mosque attack suspect charged with murder | Bangkok Post: news


CHRISTCHURCH:A right-wing extremist who filmed himself on a rampage that left 49 mosque-goers dead flashed a white power sign as he appeared in a New Zealand court Saturday charged with murder. Flanked by armed police he flashed an upside-down "okay" signal, a symbol used by white power groups across the globe. The attack has prompted searching questions about whether right-wing extremism has been treated with enough seriousness by Western governments. Ardern said she would be reviewing events leading up to the attack to see how the suspect went unnoticed by authorities. "The individual charged with murder had not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police, for extremism," she said.
