Australian police carry out biggest counter-terrorism raid

Australian police say they have carried out the biggest counter-terrorism operation in the country's history.

More than 800 officers were involved in the raids, which targeted dozens of homes in Sydney and Brisbane.

It comes days after the government raised the terror alert level to high amid concern over the possible radicalisation of Australian citizens returning from fighting in Syria and Iraq.
