Transcript for 3 terror suspects taken into custody for alleged attack plot in Australia
breaking news. Three terror suspects just taken into custody overseas accused of plotting an isis-inspired attack on churches and police officers in Australia. ABC's James Longman starts us off with the latest. Good morning, James. Reporter: Good morning, Cecilia. A terror plot inspired by ISIS but thankfully foiled overnight in Sydney, Australia. Three men arrested in raids across the city for planning attacks on a range of public buildings and embassies. Two of the men age 20 and 23 have been charged for being members of the so-called islamic state. Now, authorities say their targets included police stations, embassies and consulates, school, courts, even churches. The younger was monitored for over a year since his return from Lebanon and was planning to go to Afghanistan to fight alongside ISIS there, the u.s.-backed coalition may have recaptured the territory ISIS once held in Syria and Iraq but as these latest arrests show their ideology is very much a global threat and as Australia continues to deal with the issue of returning ISIS fighters the region is also reeling from far right terror after the March attacks on mosques in new Zealand that killed 51 people. Such tense times. Thank you.
