New Zealand man charged over threats to Christchurch mosques

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A New Zealand man is facing criminal charges after allegedly posting online threats against two Christchurch mosques that were the sites of a terrorist attack that left 51 people dead. Police on Thursday arrested the 27-year-old man and charged him with threatening to kill. If found guilty, he faces a maximum prison sentence of seven years. Police Superintendent John Price told reporters the threats were made earlier this week on the website 4chan, which has been used as a forum in the past by white supremacists. The arrest comes as Muslims prepare to mark the second anniversary of a white supremacist gunman’s attack at the mosques.
