US synagogue shooter inspired by Christchurch mosque attacks

California synagogue shooting suspect posted anti-Jewish 'open letter' online.

    The suspect in Saturday's shooting at Chabad synagogue in Poway, California has been charged with murder.

    The 19-year-old youth, John T Earnest, is also being investigated for an arson attack on a mosque last month.

    According to police, the suspect had posted an anti-Jewish diatribe online detailing his desire to kill Jews and claimed to have been motivated by the deadly attack on two mosques in New Zealand last month.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Poway, California.
