melbourne - The Melbourne police think they have prevented a terrorist attack on New Year's Eve due to the arrest of a 20-year-old man. According to the Australian media, this was arrested Monday afternoon in his house Werribee, a suburb southwest of the metropolis in the state of Victoria. The investigation continues but no further arrests are expected.
' It does everything that the arrested suspect made preparations for a terrorist act in Melbourne during the coming New Year '', the police said Tuesday. The threat to the second city of Australia is thereby 'sworn'. The population is not at risk.
Security has been greatly increased in Australia in recent years due to the terrorist threat. Last year an attack on Christmas Day was prevented. The authorities expect 450,000 entertainers in the center of Melbourne during old and new.
