Reuters reports New Zealand’s government does not keep a comprehensive record of hate crimes.

Earlier this month, a man killed 50 Muslims in a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand.

A few weeks earlier, a different man had threatened to burn copies of the Koran outside New Zealand mosques.

A suspected white supremacist has been charged with murder over the Christchurch shootings.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has ordered a Royal Commission into the attack.

Joris De Bres, New Zealand’s former Race Relations Commissioner, said he saw an increase in threats against Muslims after the 9/11 attacks in the United States.
