A teenage boy cracked an egg on the head of a far-right Australian politician as he spoke to reporters in Melbourne on Saturday. In the footage, Queensland Sen. Fraser Anning is shown immediately turning and striking the boy in the face before taking another swing.
…Victoria Police said they arrested the boy but later released him without charge.
…Anning was also criticized for tweets he posted following the shooting. “Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?” he wrote.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison quickly condemned Anning’s comments on Friday.
