State mov­ing against threats

The Cairns Post - - NATION -

THE state’s Min­is­ter for Counter Ter­ror­ism has warned the ter­ror is “evolv­ing rapidly”.

In the wake of the lat­est ter­ror raids in Syd­ney, David El­liott said the Gov­ern­ment takes the com­mu­nity’s safety “ex­tremely se­ri­ously” with pro­grams in place in schools and jails to com­bat ex­trem­ism as well strict bail laws for peo­ple linked to ter­ror­ism.

Jails are also be­ing up­graded to com­bat rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion.
