Melbourne terror attack plot suspects arrested in police raids over mass shooting fears

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 (KUNA) -- Three men have been arrested on suspicion of plotting a terror attack in Melbourne, Australian Police said Tuesday.
The Police added that the three suspects had tried to source a semi-automatic rifle to kill as many people as possible in a crowded space.
The men's passports had been cancelled earlier this year, Police pointed out, adding that the suspects had become "more energised" in the past week to carry out an IS-inspired attack.
All three men have been charged with one count each of acting in preparation for, or planning of terrorist acts.(end).
