Mosque threats: Linwood Mosque update

From Morning Report, 6:52 am on 5 March 2021

A man is due to appear in court today after threats to the two mosques in Christchurch.

The Linwood Islamic Centre and the Al Noor Mosque were the two sites of the 2019 attack where 51 people were massacred.

Last Sunday, a poster on the 4chan website threatened to kill even more people by using car bombs. A member of the public spotted the conversation thread and alerted police via the crimestoppers telephone service.
