Senator rebuked for blaming immigration

A far-right Australian Senator had to be restrained by security officials on Saturday after punching a young man protesting his offensive comments about the Christchurch mosque attacks. Queensland Senator Fraser Anning drew international condemnation for his efforts to blame the attack on immigration.

Egg thrown

Amid the controversy, an unnamed young man threw an egg at Mr. Anning during a press conference in Melbourne, prompting the Senator to hit him in the face repeatedly before being stopped by what appeared to be a security guard.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison described Mr. Anning’s comments as “appalling” and “ugly” with “no place in Australia”, as he announced a bipartisan motion of censure would be launched.
