    Australia - Alleged terrorist plotter was lonely, says dad

    The father of a man charged with plotting a terrorist attack in Sydney has said he was lonely. Omar Al-Kutobi was sent to Australia to study IT in 2009, funded by his father, but failed to find work even after changing courses to nursing. He and Mohammad Kiad were arrested Tuesday after a raid on their home, for plotting an 'imminent terrorist attack'.

    'Police alleged that during the raid they found a machete, a hunting knife, an Islamic State (IS) flag and a video with a recorded message in Arabic in which a man allegedly talked about carrying out an attack.

    Their case was due to be heard in Fairfield Local Court on Wednesday but was adjourned to Sydney's Central Local Court because of security issues and the nature of the charges.

    The men will appear by video link and have the opportunity to make a bail application, a move which is expected to be vigorously opposed by prosecutors.'

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance
