A brief scuffle ensued and the boy was arrested before being released without charge pending investigation.
The senator in the video is from Queensland in Australia, Fraser Anning was globally criticised after blaming Christchurch mosque shooting on increasing immigration into New Zealand.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described Anning’s comments as “appalling” and “ugly” with “no place in Australia”, as he announced a bipartisan motion of censure would be launched.
As many as 49 people lost their lives and 48 were injured on Friday in the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques.
