Australian senator hit with egg after blaming NZ attack on Muslim immigration

An unnamed young man threw an egg at Anning during a press conference in Melbourne

Australian Senator Fraser Anning was held back by the security personnel after he punched a young man who was protesting against the comments of the senator regarding the Christchurch mosque terror attacks.

"Police arrested a 17-year-old male from Hampton after he allegedly threw an egg at a 69-year-old Brisbane man at an address in Moorabbin this afternoon during a planned meeting", Victoria Police said.

The egging was nearly certainly in response to Anning's bad statement to the New Zealand mosque shootings, which killed 49 people on Friday.

A senator from Queensland in Australia, Fraser Anning was globally criticised after blaming Christchurch mosque shooting on increasing immigration into New Zealand. Videos of the altercation quickly spread on Twitter, where Anning's statement and the subsequent disavowals had introduced the fringe politician to a global audience just one day earlier.

The senator also attacked the Prophet and blamed Muslim immigration for the massacre, Mr Shanmugam added in the Facebook post on Friday night.

Television cameras caught a 17-year-old boy break the egg on Fraser Anning's head whilst filming it on his phone.

Britain's Home Secretary Sajid Javid has criticised an Australian Senator who appeared to suggest that Muslim immigration was the cause of a mass shooting at mosques in New Zealand that has left 49 dead.

Mr Morrison said there had been discussions between Senators Mathias Cormann and Penny Wong about a bipartisan motion when Parliament returns in April.

His controversial comments were widely condemned, including by Prime Minister Scott Morrison who described his statement as "disgusting". "Those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament".

Meanwhile, he has also received more than 30,000 comments of praise from all over the world including the Netherlands, Morocco and Egypt. "He should be, frankly, ashamed of himself".

The senator drew worldwide backlash after blaming the terror attack that took place in two New Zealand mosques on Muslim immigration.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten voiced his anger at Mr Anning, saying he was "chasing a headline".
