The Austrian government has confirmed that accused Christchurch shooter Brenton Tarrant donated money to an Austrian white nationalist group. As a result the leader of the far-right Identitarian Movement Martin Sellner had his home raided and electronic devices seized. Since then the Austrian officials have signalled that they will attempt to dissolve Mr Sellner's group. Frank Jordans from the Associated Press in Germany speaks to Susie Ferguson.
