Australian police explain foiled plot to bomb Sydney flight

Australian police
Australian police on Friday detailed a foiled terrorist plot to blow up a commercial airliner, saying it was one of the most sophisticated they've seen yet.


Two brothers were arrested on charges of preparing or planning a terrorist attack and will be arraigned on Friday. Investigators said they planned to smuggle a bomb they had constructed from of parts -- sent to them by the Islamic State terror group -- onto an Etihad Airlines plane flying out of Sydney.

Khaled Khayat, 49, and Mahmoud Khayat, 32, appeared via video link in a Sydney court on Friday. Their next hearing is scheduled for Nov. 14. Both could receive life imprisonment if convicted.

The bomb was discovered at the airport's check-in counter on July 15 before it made it onto the plane, authorities said.
