Australian Police Charge Three Men Over Plot to Undertake ‘Mass’ Attack

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Police said on Tuesday they arrested three men who were allegedly preparing to attack a “mass gathering” in Melbourne, less than two weeks after a man was killed in Australia’s second-largest city in what police said was an act of terrorism.


Australian federal and state police, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, and other agencies that form part of the Joint Counter Terrorism Team carried out the arrests on Tuesday morning.


Police said three men, Hanifi Halis, 21, Samed Erikioglu, 26 and Ertunc Erikioglu, 30, were taken into custody after they allegedly sought to acquire a semi-automatic gun to carry out an attack.


All three men were charged with planning a terrorist act, police said. They are all Australian citizens and their passports were canceled earlier this year.
