Counter-terrorism police in Australia have stopped a suspected plot to bring down an aeroplane, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has said. He was speaking after four people were arrested in raids across Sydney. Investigators said they had information that the plot to blow up an aircraft involved the use of an "improvised device". Mr Turnbull said the raids had been a "major joint counter-terrorism operation". He said extra security was in place at domestic and international airports. The raids took place in the Sydney suburbs of Surry Hills, Lakemba, Wiley Park and Punchbowl, Australian broadcaster ABC reported. Australia's national terror threat level remains at "probable".

Four men were taken into custody last night when heavily armed counter-terrorism officers raided four Sydney properties over the alleged plot. Mr Turnbull said increased security measures have been placed on all Australian airports, although the terror threat level remains the same at probable. "I can report last night that there has been a major joint counter-terrorism operation to disrupt a terrorist plot to bring down an airplane," the Australian leader told reporters The additional security has been put in place at domestic and international terminals. Mr Turnbull is advising travellers to arrive at the airport two hours before their flight.

Not many details on this story yet, I winder if any local ATS members their in OZ might have a closer perspective or personal take on this recent event. Seems this is the first I have seen of this type of planned bombing in OZ. Welcome to the club, unfortunately. And kudo's to your police force for foiling the plot!

This is about the Philippines but there were warning signs from some of the captured documents of the grand plan to cause mayhem in many parts of Asia to include Australia.

Keep that thought in mind, as these countries band together to fight ISIS in the Pacific.
Nations agree to boost fight against IS in Southeast Asia

MANADO, Indonesia – A six-nation summit co-hosted by Indonesia and Australia has agreed to set up a forum to strengthen cooperation between intelligence services to counter extremist threats. Security ministers and officials from Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and New Zealand held a one-day meeting on Saturday in Manado, the capital of Indonesia's North Sulawesi province, focusing on the Islamic State group attack on the southern Philippine city of Marawi. Indonesia's top security minister, Wiranto, told a news conference that the six countries agreed to establish the Foreign Terrorist Fighters Forum to strengthen information sharing and cooperation between law enforcement and intelligence services.


This truly has become a World War now.

Glad the cops nabbed them!

Lakemba and Punchbowl are two Muslim majority neighborhoods so I'll let people draw their own conclusion.

But I will say that THIS is why increasingly here in the West we can't have nice things.....

The Counter-terrorism squad in Australia seem to be much more adept at catching these guys than the US or Britain.

Nope. but as mentally unsound as she is I'd prefer a thousand of her to one of those leeching muslims immigrants that do nothing but intimidate Australian locals out of the neighborhoods they've lives in for their entire lives.

Is that what you really think? There really are "gigantic muslim enclaves" in these areas. If you wish to be willfully ignorant there isn't much I can do to help you understand a darn thing.

Lots of places, but see above for the gigantic muslim enclaves I mentioned which you don't believe exist. DO some research and ask questions where you find gaps and you can draw your own conclusion but I've been there.

No. You enlighten US. This can be your little test to see whether or not you're full of sht and what your agenda is. Because what I say is very true and if what you say also is then you've either been walking around with your eyes and ears closed or are lying.
