Threats made on 4chan lead to arrests in New Zealand
New Zealand police say they have arrested two people following a threat made online to the Linwood Islamic centre and Al Noor mosque, the sites of the two Christchurch shootings in 2019.
Newshub reported that armed police raided two homes after an alleged threat involving a terror attack with car bombs on the second anniversary of the mosque shootings next week.
Det Insp Michael Ford told Stuff police had acted on information from the public regarding “concerning communications on the 4chan site”.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/mar/04/new-zealand-police-arrest-two-over-alleged-threat-to-christchurch-mosques
