Topic: Australian anti-terror police say imminent IS-linked attack thwarted


Australian counter-terrorism police said on Wednesday they had thwarted an imminent attack linked to the Islamic State militant group after arresting two men in Sydney a day earlier. Australia has been on heightened alert for attacks by home-grown Islamist radicals. It raised its national terror threat level to "high" for the first time in September, when hundreds of police conducted raids after receiving information that a radical group planned to conduct a public beheading. "When we did the search of the premises, a number of items were located, including a machete, a hunting knife, a home-made flag representing the prescribed terrorist organisation IS, and also a video which depicted a man talking about carrying out an attack," New South Wales Deputy Police Commissioner Catherine Burn told reporters.
