Australia on Alert After ISIS Raids

Australia faces the specter of a potential ISIS attack, according to Prime Minister Tony Abbott. There were a series of raids today against ISIS linked jihadist suspects. According to the police, 15 people were detained. 800 police took part in the raid.

The raids came after the treat of ISIS performing a public killing on Australian soil.
"Quite direct exhortations were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country," Abbott told reporters, referring to the al-Qaida splinter group leading Sunni militants in Iraq, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which now calls itself simply Islamic State.

Australia's terror alert was recently raised and an Australian is a senior member of ISIS within the Middle East.
