Government targeted as anti-terror police arrest two in Australia

Armed police run toward a cafe in the central business district of Sydney on December 15, 2014Two men have been seized in Sydney with one allegedly in possession of documents connected to a planned terrorist attack on government targets, police said Wednesday. The arrests by counter-terror police follow a series pre-dawn raids across Sydney and Brisbane in September as concern mounts about the flow of people to Iraq and Syria to fight with the Islamic State group and other jihadists. One of the men charged late Tuesday, a 20-year-old, was accused of being in “possession of documents designed to facilitate a terrorist attack” while a 21-year-old was accused of breaching a control order issued by a judge. “Certainly the documents talked a little bit about potential government targets,” said Australian Federal Police Deputy Commissioner for National Security Michael Phelan.
