A researcher into the alt-right and white nationalism says the overnight terror attack in Germany is amost definitely alt-right related. The gunman was wearing military-style clothing, and a helmet-mounted camera which was used to livestream the shooting to the game streaming website Twitch. Ben Elley, a Phd student at University of Canterbury, and senior researcher at Independent Research Solutions in Christchurch, told Morning Report there seems to be evidence that taking 8chan down hasn't stopped the attacks.
