Melbourne man planned New Year's Eve terror attack, police say per BBC News

The BBC report begins thus:

'Australian police have arrested a man they allege was planning to carry out a terror attack during New Year's Eve celebrations in Melbourne.

The 20-year-old man will be charged with terrorism offences that carry a maximum penalty of life in prison, authorities said.

Police allege the man had planned to shoot people with an automatic gun at Federation Square in the city's centre.'

Read on beyond the first set of photos and links and you learn the unsurprising news that he was the child of Somali parents and was linked to ISIL. The BBC know full well that many, if not most people, read just the start of online articles so they hide inconvenient facts down their articles.
