Call to vet foreign students after mosque attack planner revealed as former New Zealand student

A security expert is calling for more scrutiny of foreign students coming here to study.

It follows the gunning down of a former New Zealand student by police in Saudi Arabia.

They say Taie bin Salem bin Yaslam al-Saya’ari planned an attack last year at one of Islam’s holiest sites.

After the shoot-out over the weekend they found two explosive belts, two machine guns, a home-made grenade and basins filled with chemicals.

Strategic analyst Paul Buchanan told Newstalk ZB’s Tim Dower it was inevitable something like this would happen.
