Walkout at Christchurch anti-terrorism hui

From Morning Report, 6:38 am on 16 June 2021

Members of New Zealand's Muslim community say they will return to the final day of the anti-terrorism hui in Christchurch, despite yesterday's walkout.

During a panel talk on the causes of terrorism, a comment from a Jewish council representative on the Israel-Palestine conflict prompted shouting and a sudden exodus.

The country's first hui on Countering Terrorism and Violent Extremism is discussing how to mitigate the terrorism risk in New Zealand.

Eleisha Foon was there.
