After terror raids, West Australian premier invites Muslims for a meet
Sunday September 21, 2014 7:25 PM, IANS

Western Australia Premier Colin Barnett wants to meet Muslim leaders in the state to reassure them they are welcome following last week's counter-terrorism raids.

Barnett said it is important to be conscious of any racial or religious tensions after last week's terror raids in Sydney and Brisbane, and wants to meet them, the Western Australia Today reported.

He said Islamic leaders in Perth have done enough to speak out against extremists, and the threat of violence came from only a small number of people.

Police in Australia Sep 18 detained 15 people in Sydney as part of major counter-terrorism raids, reported as the largest of its kind in Australia and based on specific intelligence of plans by the Islamic State to mastermind public executions in Australia.

A string of raids were conducted in the suburbs of Brisbane as part of a 800 officer operation.
