The emerging reality of terrorism in Australia struck home just before dawn on Thursday when more than 800 police launched synchronised raids on houses across Sydney's west and north-west, and Brisbane's south.
The raids foiled a plot involving a man believed to be Australia's most senior Islamic State member, Mohammad Ali Baryalei, who called contacts in Australia and directed them to carry out a campaign of random public beheadings in Sydney and Brisbane, the ABC understands.
Omarjan Azari, 22, from the western Sydney suburb of Guildford, was one of 15 people detained during the operation and is accused of conspiring with Baryalei and others to act in preparation or plan a terrorist act or acts.
