Anti-terror operation in Sydney and Brisbane 'thwarted' beheading plot

Police say a large-scale anti-terrorism raid in Sydney this morning has foiled a plot to "commit violent acts" in Australia, including a plan to behead a member of the public. More than 800 officers launched the raids as part of Operation Appleby in suburbs across Sydney's west and north-west, with a further 70 police involved in raids on properties in Brisbane's south. Police said 15 people had been detained in Sydney as part of the operation between NSW officers, the Australian Federal Police and ASIO. Court documents are expected to reveal that the raids, at 25 different properties, were aimed at a cell which planned to behead a member of the public in Sydney.
