SYDNEY (AFP) - Two men have been arrested after counter-terrorism raids in Sydney, Australian officials said on Saturday, following long-running investigations into those backing fighters involved in conflicts such as in Syria and Iraq.


Officers arrested one man on Friday following raids at four properties in Sydney's southwest that police said were "part of a long-running investigation and not as a result of any specific terrorism threat".


The 33-year-old was arrested and charged with acquiring and possessing ammunition illegally, police said.
