Two men charged in Australia over ISIL airplane bomb plot

Australian police said on Friday two men have been charged over terror-related offences involving a plan to place an improvised explosive device on an Etihad Airways flight.

The men had assistance from Islamic State in Syria, but the device did not breach airport security, said Australian Federal Police Deputy Commissioner National Security Michael Phelan.

Police arrested four men last weekend in raids across Australia’s biggest city of Sydney. One man has been released while another is being held without charge under special counter-terror laws.
