Australia Arrests 2 Men During Anti-Terror Raids

Two men have been arrested after counter-terrorism raids in Sydney, Australian officials said Saturday, according to AFP.

Officers arrested one man on Friday following raids at four properties in Sydney’s southwest that police said were “part of a long-running investigation and not as a result of any specific terrorism threat”, the report said.

The 33-year-old was arrested and charged with acquiring and possessing ammunition illegally, police said.

The investigation, which has been running for more than a year, is looking into alleged financial and other support for foreign fighters in conflicts including those in Syria and Iraq.
