Terror Attack Foiled in Melbourne

Seven people have been arrested in Melbourne after allegedly preparing for a terrorist plot, Victoria Police said.

 

The arrests came after properties at Flemington, Meadow Heights and Dallas in Melbourne were raided as part of a counter-terrorism operation involving Victoria Police, the Australian Federal Police and ASIO.

Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said it was believed a number of people were intending to carry out a "multi-mode" attack, possibly on Christmas Day.

 

"Over the last fortnight … we have had to conduct a criminal investigation relating to the formation of what we believe was a terrorist plot," he said.

 

"We believe that there was an intention to conduct what we call a multi-mode attack, possibly on Christmas Day."

 

Commissioner Ashton said the police believed the plot involved explosives and other weapons and was targeting high-profile Melbourne locations, including Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, and St Paul's Cathedral.

 

"We believe [the plot] was going to involve an explosive event, the use of explosives, and we gathered evidence to support that," he said.

 

"There has also been evidence that we will lead around the possibility of an intention to use other weapons. That could include knives and/or a firearm."

 

Five of the people arrested are still in custody and being questioned by police, he added.

More to come.

Melbourne is riddled with the scum , it was inevitable that these slime that have no respect for human life , unless you are a member of their "Cult" , were going to try something as a group effort sooner or later.

 

Deport to country of origin , or country of parents origin upon release from jail .... or the cancer continues to spread.

I'm sorry to hear that. I haven't been to Melbourne in many years, but I always liked that city when I had traveled there in the past.

Its a matter of when, not if, our beautiful city falls victim to the violence being introduced by our far too liberal immigration / refugee (bleeding hearts) policies.

 

We have gangs of African youths carrying out acts of violence without any regard for the law, and terrorists plotting mass murders on the good citizens that are paying taxes to keep them in their government funded housing with benefits much greater than the average pensioner that paid into the tax system their whole life.

 

Oh but we must cut them some slack, they have come from war torn countries and dont know any better..

I live up in NSW and if I didn't listen to Neil Mitchell every now and then, I would have never heard of the Apex gang. The media, police and everyone else being too gutless to address this head on is a bloody disgrace!

There are Lebanese christians as well I don't see any of these as threats.   If only we could find the key that radicalises someone, its only a few of them but enough to cause major social issues.

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
