Police stand guard outside a house as four people are arrested over the terror-linked murder of a police employee after coordinated raids by more than 200 officers on properties across Sydney on October 7, 2015Three of four people arrested in Australia over a terror-linked murder by a radicalised teenager have been released without charge in a move police admitted Thursday was “incredibly frustrating”. The four, aged between 16 and 22, were seized during large-scale dawn raids across Sydney on Wednesday after police employee Curtis Cheng was shot outside New South Wales state police headquarters last week. Farhad Jabar, 15, shot the 58-year-old in the back of the head while reportedly shouting religious slogans before being gunned down in an exchange of fire with police.
