” One teenager has been charged, three released and another remains in custody after police raids targeting an alleged Anzac Day terror plot in Melbourne.

  An estimated 200 Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police officers arrested the five men after seven raids across Melbourne’s southeast before dawn today.

  Police have charged 18-year-old Hallam teenager Sevdet Besim with “conspiracy to commit acts done in preparation for, or planning, terrorist acts”, a Commonwealth offence.

  Mr Besim appeared for a 30-second hearing at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court where he was remanded in custody to reappear for a filing hearing on Friday.

  Dressed in a black windcheater, the bearded Besim did not bow to magistrate Alan Spillane as he was taken to the holding cells below.

  Narre Warren man Lindim Sulejmani, 18, has been released and is expected to be charged on summons with prohibited weapons offences.

  The two other Narre Warren men, aged 18 and 19, have been released pending further enquiries.”
