SYDNEY: Australia has prevented a third teenager from flying out to fight in the Middle East, a minister said on Wednesday, as Western countries battle to stop the flow of youngsters to jihadist groups. The 17-year-old boy was taken off a plane at Sydney airport on March 12 after being interviewed by counter-terrorism officers, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton told reporters. He has since been returned to his family while investigations continue.
