UAE deports man for praising NZ mosque attack

An employee at a Dubai-based security company was fired and deported for celebrating the deadly New Zealand mosque attacks under a fake identity on Facebook, the firm said on Wednesday.

“Over the weekend, a Transguard employee made inflammatory comments on his Facebook account celebrating the deplorable mosque attack in Christchurch,” the Transguard security group said in a statement. “Despite posting under a false name, the employee responsible for last weekend’s inflammatory comments has been identified, terminated as per Transguard policy and handed over to the authorities.”

Transguard did not name the employee or reveal his nationality.
