Man faces terrorism charges after raid

POLICE yesterday raided up to a dozen properties in Melbourne, seizing guns and arresting one man over alleged links to home-grown Islamist terrorism.

The 23-year-old man from the outer-eastern suburb of Officer was expected to be charged last night with collecting or making documents ''likely to facilitate terrorist acts''.

State and federal police had seized items including a computer memory stick containing ''violent extremist materials'', imitation firearms and ''a number'' of registered guns, police said in a statement.

The operation, revealed exclusively last night by theage.com.au, was targeted at individuals connected with the Al-Furqan centre in Springvale.
