MANCHESTER: A man has been arrested in Greater Manchester following a social media post professing support for the New Zealand mosque attacks, international media reported Sunday.
Greater Manchester Police said it became aware of the post and after “urgent enquiries” arrested a 24-year-old man in Oldham. He was held on suspicion of sending malicious communications.
A spokesman for the force said: “This is a very difficult time for people. The events in New Zealand have reverberated around the world. Many people are in deep shock and are worried.
“Where the law permits and people cross the line, we will take robust action, which may include arrest and prosecution.”
