Three Turks charged over alleged terror plot in Australia’s Melbourne

Three Australian nationals of Turkish descent who allegedly plotted “chilling” terror attacks in Melbourne were charged early on Nov. 20, less than two weeks after a stabbing rampage inspired by the ISIS left two dead in Australia’s second city, police said.

The three men were detained by counter-terror police in overnight raids as they escalated preparations to attack crowded areas of Melbourne, according to police.

The trio, two brothers aged 31 and 26 and 21-year-old, were later charged with planning a terrorist action, which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, officials said.
