Teen Held in Sydney for ‘Terror Plans’

Australian Federal Police charged a 15-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man with conspiracy to carry out an act of terrorism after early-morning raids in Sydney on Thursday. Speaking at a press conference, police officials said they believe the two were conspiring to carry out attacks on the Australian Federal Police headquarters in Sydney as well as random civilians with three men who were already in custody on terrorism-related offenses. The two men arrested Thursday were involved in “formulating documents connected with preparations to facilitate, assist, or engage a person to undertake a terrorist act,” police said.
