Australia raids Islamic center, arrests two for militant links

Australian police Wednesday raided an Islamic center and seized two men for alleged involvement in recruiting and sending militants to Syria.

The raids involving 180 police came a day after the country’s spy chief said he was “actively considering” raising the terror threat level over Australians’ involvement in overseas militant groups.

Australian Federal Police said the men, aged 21 and 31, were arrested for terrorism offences, alleging they were “involved in recruiting, facilitating and funding people to travel to Syria to engage in hostile activities”.
