Australia decides to toughen parole laws after fatal siege

Australia decides to toughen parole laws after fatal siege

Patton said that police were also speaking to a 51-year-old man and his 31-year-old son after a similar shotgun used by Khayre was found at their home.

"Victoria Police and their partners within the Joint Counter Terrorism Team are conducting a police operation in the northern suburbs this morning".

Victorian deputy police commissioner Shane Patton said the man did not have any links to terrorism, but had a criminal history.

The 32-year-old man was taken into custody during a raid in Glenroy, and is suspected of being linked to the firearms used by Brighton siege gunman Yacqub Khayre.

Victoria State Premier Daniel Andrews told Sky News television that the raids were conducted "in connection with the bad tragic events of Monday in Brighton". "We haven't yet uncovered anyone linked with terrorism", he said.

Australian government leaders on Friday agreed to toughen parole laws in response to a siege this week in which a gunman who once trained with Muslim extremists killed an apartment building receptionist and wounded three police officers months after being released early from prison.

Police said they seized computers and mobile phones and an imitation shotgun, but no firearms or live ammunition.

"The searches are still very active at this stage ..."

"We don't want to put any of our operations staff in harm's way by speaking about these matters but they are in connection with the bad, tragic events of Monday in Brighton".

Khayre was on parole at the time, shot and killed Chinese-born Kai Hao and held an escort hostage before dying in a hail of bullets.

Mr Patton said officers entered the first unit, in Ascot Vale, by force but no one was present.

Residents in Ascot Vale in Melbourne's north have described seeing police rummage through bins as part of an early morning anti-terror operation on Friday.
