Two men will stand trial after pleading not guilty to plotting a Christmas Day terror attack, allegedly targeting key Melbourne landmarks and using bomb-making instructions from an al-Qaeda magazine.

Hamza Abbas, 22, his brother Ibrahim Abbas, 23, Ahmed Mohamed, 24, and Abdullah Chaarani, 26 have faced the Melbourne Magistrates Court this week for a committal hearing to determine if they should stand trial.

On Wednesday, both Mohamed and Chaarani denied the charges and were ordered to face the Supreme Court of Victoria next week for an administrative hearing before the trial.
