Australia's Senate condemns lawmaker over NZ massacre Muslim comments

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Australia's Senate censured an independent right-wing lawmaker on Wednesday (April 3) for his comments that New Zealand's mosques shooting massacre which left 50 people dead was a result of letting "Muslim fanatics" migrate to the country.

Senator Fraser Anning has been widely condemned for his comments made shortly after a lone gunman attacked two mosques in Christchurch on March 15.

Sitting for the first time since the attack, Australia's upper house overwhelmingly passed a censure motion against Anning - the first such public rebuke of a lawmaker in four years.

A censure motion has no direct legal consequences but acts as an expression of the Senate's disapproval.

Senator Anning denied he had blamed the victims, insisting the censure was an attack on his civil liberties.
