Terror Raids: AFP, ASIO Move On Suspected Terrorists In Biggest Counterterrorism Raid In Australia’s History
” Police backed up by armoured cars arrested at least 15 people of people in 12 separate pre-dawn operations in NSW, plus three more in Brisbane.
The combined effort amounted to the largest anti-terrorism operation in Australian history — and senior officers revealed the attack by a suspected terrorist cell was imminent.
It is believed police intercepted a phone call outlining a plan to kidnap a random member of the public and murder them by beheading, while filming the act to post on social media.
It is also understood the group had planned to target a tourist, possibly in Martin Place in the CBD.”
