Notice how all these 'threats' come along at holiday time. The Sydney cafa event happened just few days before we knocked for christmass, now this is happening just near a long weekend.

Have there been two of these cases in Oz? I was watching the news, here in the U.K another said something about a 14 year old arrested in a bomb plot. I distinctly remember them mentioning he was too young to be tried as an adult...
A 14-year-old boy from Blackburn has been charged by UK prosecutors with two counts of inciting terrorism in Australia.
The boy is accused of inciting another person to carry out an attack at an Anzac Day event with the aim of killing or seriously injuring people.
He is also accused of inciting another person to behead someone in Australia.
Anzac Day is commemorated on 25 April in memory of Australian and New Zealand soldiers who have died in war.
The boy, who has not been named for legal reasons, is believed to be the youngest person to be charged with terrorism offences in the UK to date, according to BBC home affairs correspondent Daniel Sandford.
