One Of Four Men Arrested Over Alleged Plane Terror Plot Released

Police direct locals around a block of flats in the Sydney suburb of Lakemba after counter-terrorism raids across the city. AFP

While Prof Barton said the conspiracy was "clearly the most sophisticated terror plot" Australia had ever seen, it likely would have failed because the bomb may have been stopped at security, failed to detonate or failed to bring an aircraft down.

"Etihad is complying fully with the enhanced security measures at airports in Australia and monitoring the situation closely".

News agency Reuters cited a United States official as saying the plot was "fairly well along". "Our Mfat (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade) and security officials are constantly assessing potential risks and providing advice for travellers accordingly", an Aviation Security spokesman said.

Another two U.S. officials familiar with the Australian arrests said a developing plot had been detected.

British intelligence tipped off the Australian authorities about an Islamist plot to bring down an worldwide flight, it has been claimed.

The AFP has not released details of the plot, although a USA official familiar with the arrests told Reuters that the target appeared to have been a commercial flight from Sydney to the Persian Gulf.

The houses of the detained men were still being searched on Monday evening, two days after the arrests.

One of the four men arrested in a major counter-terrorism operation in Sydney last weekend has been released. A police officer at the scene declined to comment.
