Aussie Teen Pleads Guilty to Terror Charge

An Australian teenager detained during raids in Melbourne in May has pleaded guilty to a terror-related charge. The 17-year-old boy pleaded guilty to engaging in an act in preparation for, or planning, a terrorist act between 25 April and 8 May this year. He admitted the charge ahead of a committal hearing and prosecutors dropped two other charges, BBC reported. Earlier hearings were told he prepared to make explosives after obtaining instructions online, said local media. His computer had contained encrypted documents detailing how to make bombs and police had also seized pressure cookers, a powder containing ground-up matchstick heads and pipes connected to caps, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Police also told the court radical propaganda was found during the raids. The boy did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody. He is set to appear in court again on Thursday. A 15-year-old was arrested last week and was among several charged with conspiring to prepare for a terrorist act.
