Oz police raise terror threat levels

Australian police have raised the terror threat levels from medium to high on Tuesday following recent terror-related incidents in Sydney, Canada and France.

Police in New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland have upgraded their terror warnings, joining Australia’s national alert from medium level to high, Xinhua reported. However, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) suggested it was not just local incidents that led to the raising of terror level and cited attacks on Canadian Parliament in October last year and the Charlie Hebdo magazine office in France earlier in the month.

“As a result of intelligence information and discussions with our partners, the terrorism threat level against police is assessed as high, which is commensurate with the broader threat level for the community,” the AFP said in a statement.
