Australian police on Tuesday arrested three men suspected of being involved in an Islamic State terror attack plot in Sydney.
Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Ian McCartney told reporters at a press conference that the men, aged 20, 23, and 30 were arrested after several authorities monitored their online activity.
“We will say that they had a number of targets, including police stations, defense establishments, embassies and councils, courts and churches,” McCartney told reporters.
The commissioner said the men will be charged with a number of “serious offenses” ranging from being a member of a terrorist organization, planning a terror attack, and preparations to enter a foreign country with the intent of hostile activities.
“We have sufficient evidence to charge and that’s why we’ve taken this action today,” McCartney said.
