Two Sydney Teens Charged with Planning for Sydney Attack

Sydney, – Two 16-year-old Australian boys arrested in Sydney after each bought a knife were charged on Thursday with planning a terrorist attack on behalf of the extremist Islamic State group, police said.

The two were arrested by the federal-state Joint Counter-Terrorism Team in the western suburb of Bankstown on Wednesday, New South Wales state Deputy Police Commissioner Catherine Burn said, as Australia marked the 14th anniversary of extremist bombings in Indonesia that killed 202, including 88 Australians.

Burn said police had been concerned about the pair for some time and that the boys had potentially been radicalized by peers. Police said the arrests marked the 11th imminent extremist attack that they have prevented in Australia since the terror threat was increased in September 2014. There have been four extremist attacks in Australia in that time.
