THIS is the moment an Australian senator who blamed the Christchurch mosque massacres on immigration was egged.

Fraser Anning had sparked outrage after claiming Muslim immigration in New Zealand was responsible for the deaths of 49 mosque worshippers.

The politician was yesterday speaking to media in Melbourne when a young man can be seen waiting from the sidelines – then smashing the egg on the back of the 69-year-old man’s head, ABC News reported.

In response, Senator Anning can be seen swinging punches at the young man, with one connecting with the side of his head.

The confrontation comes after the Senator was widely condemned for his comments in the wake of the massacre that saw at least 49 killed and dozens injured.

Condemnation was led by Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

“The remarks by Senator Fraser Anning blaming the murderous attacks by a violent, right-wing, extremist terrorist in New Zealand on immigration are disgusting,” he said.

“Those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament.”

Britain’s Home Secretary Sajid Javid added his voice to the condemnation, saying: “At a time for grieving and reflection, this Australian senator Fraser Anning fans the flames of violence and extremism.”

“Australians will be utterly ashamed of this racist man. In no way does he represent our Australian friends.”


The youngster was separated from the senator by a staffer before being led away by police.

A Victoria Police spokesman said officers arrested a 17-year-old boy from Hampton who was released pending further inquiries.

A fundraising page has been set up to buy “more eggs” and to raise funds for lawyers.
