Australia airport securitys stay heighted over terror plot

Mr Turnbull said security had been increased at all major worldwide and domestic airports around Australia.

"This is an example of the outstanding work that is conducted by the joint-counter terrorism team", Turnbull said in remarks broadcast by Australia's ABC News and posted on his official Twitter account.

"We believe we have disrupted a legitimate and credible attempt to attack an aircraft", Colvin told reporters without elaborating. "Some of the measures will be obvious to the public, some will not be", Turnbull said.

Police raided five homes Saturday and removed a domestic grinder and a mincer used to make sausage, the newspaper said.

"As a matter of course, the Australian government will continue to monitor security developments and adjust security settings as needed", he said.

"Be assured we have the finest security and intelligence services in the world and they are working, as is my government, and all our governments around Australia to keep Australians safe", Turnbull said.

The alleged plot to use an improvised device to bring down a plane in Australia prompted the tougher arrangements.

Speaking to Sky News, Justice Minister Keenan said that security would be tightened for the foreseeable future, causing delays for both domestic and global travellers, but they would ensure that Australia's "world-leading" security and intelligence agencies can keep people safe.




Travellers have been advised to arrive at Australian airports earlier than usual - two hours before departure - to allow for extra security screening.

The foiled Australian terrorist plot targeting an airline, believed to be inspired by ISIS, has gotten the attention of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He said the public needed to go about their business and give themselves more time at the airport.

"There'll be lots of speculation around what the intent was. but I don't want to add to that", Dutton told Nine Network television.

"(Security measures) will be required for as long as the threat is assessed as requiring them".

Australia's Justice Minister Michael Keenan said this plot serves as a reminder that while lone wolf attacks are not the only serious threat to their country.
