Australia: Jihad has infected other schools: cops

The scourge of Islamic extremism in schools has spread beyond Epping­ Boys High, with senior police yesterday warning that the Sydney high school “is not unique’’ in having to confront the problem.

NSW Premier Mike Baird announced­ yesterday that he was seeking an “urgent briefing’’ from police and education officials following revelations in The Australian that police are investigating alleged extremist activity within the school.

Mr Baird expressed concern at what he said appeared to be the “increasin­g radicalisation of young people, especially where it involves students in our schools’’.
