Joe Biden Inauguration: New Zealand DIA deploys online counter-terror team

Warnings of violent political acts in the United States have prompted New Zealand authorities to deploy an online counter-terrorism team.

The Department of Internal Affairs is assigning staff to monitor online platforms before, during and immediately after Joe Biden's Presidential inauguration.

Warnings from US law enforcement about a heightened risk of domestic terrorism or violent acts in America prompted the move.

The concerns emerged after a mob supporting defeated President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol a fortnight ago.

Jared Mullen, DIA director of digital safety, said specialist staff were ready to detect and respond to content that could harm New Zealanders.

"This includes content that may potentially be illegal, such as video or images that clearly promote terrorism or extreme violence."
