The leader of one of the mosques targeted in the Christchurch terror attacks says police dismissed his reports of suspicious behaviour at the premises in the years before the attacks.

The March 15 terrorist shootings at two Christchurch mosques killed 51 people and injured dozens more.

Speaking to Newshub, Al Noor Masjid Imam Gamal Fouda said police ignored his reports of concerning behaviour at the Deans Ave mosque, including one just three weeks before the attack, and assured him the mosque was safe.
