Islamic Terror Threat Made Against New Zealand Prime Minister: ‘Revenge is Coming’
An Islamic terror threat was tweeted at New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, following the livestreamed massacre at two mosques on Friday.
The threat, posted to Twitter, warned that “revenge is coming” along with a gun painted in white wording similar to the gun used by the mosque shooter. An ISIS flag was visible behind the weapons.
The tweet was sent in response to Ardern tweeting, “What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence. It has no place in New Zealand. Many of those affected will be members of our migrant communities – New Zealand is their home – they are us.”
The threat was reported and archived by independent journalist Nick Monroe.
