Sister of accused mosque shooter has home raided

Counter-terrorism police have raided two homes on the NSW mid-north coast as part of investigations into the Christchurch terrorist attack.

Officers from the NSW Joint Counter Terrorism Team searched a property in Sandy Beach, near Coffs Harbour, about 8.30am on Monday, before storming a second house at Lawrence, near Maclean.

"The primary aim of the activity is to formally obtain material that may assist New Zealand Police in their ongoing investigation," the Australian Federal Police and NSW Police said in a joint statement.

The New Zealand Herald is reporting the property in Coffs Harbour was the home of Brenton Tarrant's sister.
