CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – Australia's Prime Minister has suggested that an anti-Muslim senator be accused after he hit a teenager who broke a raw egg over the legislature's head.
Sen. Fraser Anning has been widely condemned for blaming Muslim immigration for racist attacks on two New Zealand mosques that claimed at least 50 lives.
The 17-year-old boy who egged Anning has become an online hero.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison took the side of the egg on Sunday and told reporters: "The full force of the law must be applied to Sen. Anning."
The police claim that the boy attacked the senator with the egg. The boy's name has not been published.
Police also said that Anning "retaliated and beat the teenager twice."
