Police officers were justified in arresting a man who publicly criticised authorities after the Christchurch mosque shooting, with an independent investigation finding that wasn't the reason he was arrested.

The man was arrested after police received information he was in possession of a military-style semi-automatic firearm on March 17, 2019 - two days after the Christchurch terror attack.

The United States on Thursday imposed a broad array of sanctions on Russia, including curbs to its sovereign debt market, to punish it for interfering in last year's US election, cyber-hacking, bullying Ukraine and other alleged "malign" actions.

The US government blacklisted Russian companies, expelled Russian diplomats and barred US banks from buying sovereign bonds from Russia's central bank, national wealth fund and finance ministry. Washington also warned the Kremlin that more penalties were possible though the United States said it did not want to escalate.

The testing of border workers has once again come under fire after revelations Case B, a security guard at Auckland's Grand Millennium managed isolation facility, went almost five months without a COVID-19 test.
