Australia raises terror alert level to ‘high’

0

SYDNEY: Australia on Friday raised its terror threat level to “high” for the first time in a decade on growing concern about Australian jihadists returning from fighting in Iraq and Syria. The heightened alert after years on “medium” officially means a “terrorist attack is likely” and comes after repeated government warnings that attacks could happen. “There are people with the intent and the capability to mount attacks here in Australia,” Prime Minister Tony Abbott told a press conference.
