Terrorist attack stopped in Melbourne

Werribee man charged with terrorism offences over alleged Federation Square massacre plot


A man has faced court charged with terrorism offences after allegedly trying to get a gun and plotting to "shoot as many people as he could" on New Year's Eve.

Ali Khalif Shire Ali, 20, from Werribee, was arrested at a home in Melbourne's south-west just before 3:00pm on Monday.

He appeared before Melbourne Magistrates' Court this afternoon charged with preparing to commit a terrorist attack and gathering documents to facilitate a terrorist act.

Police said they moved in today because he had been having face-to-face meetings about getting a gun.

Mr Ali, who police said was connected to other extremists, did not manage to obtain one, Deputy Commissioner Patton said.
The man could not obtain a gun. Think about that for just a moment.

In Parliament today, the Justice Minister Michael Keenan had this to say:


This is the 14th time that our authorities have stopped an attack from occurring in Australia since 2014. That hasn’t happened because of luck, that’s happened because our agencies are very, very good at what they do.
