ent into the medal count for A

CANBERRA Cheap Women's Nike Air Max 97 Ultra' 17 Rose Gold Shoes , Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Australia's Attorney-General George Brandis has used the fatal shooting of a terror suspect in Melbourne overnight to support his case that Australia's intelligence agencies needed greater powers.

Brandis said the threat to domestic security was clearer now than it had been since the Cold War, and that was reflected by the incident on Tuesday night in suburban Melbourne when an 18-year- old man stabbed two police officers before being fatally shot by one of them.

According to Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay, the young man, Abdul Numan Haider, attacked a police officer who tried to shake his hand outside the Endeavour Hills police station, and then stabbed another officer.

""When our police members have approached this young man, one's extended his hand to shake his hand and the response has been he's been stabbed in the arm,"" Lay said at a media conference.

""The attacker then turned on the second police member and stabbed him three or four times in the body and in the head. The first wounded member has then shot and killed the young man,"" said Lay.

Australia's Senate is debating the Government's first round of counter-terrorism laws, which would make it easier for intelligence officials to access computers and give them legal immunity when carrying out covert operations.

It would also increase the penalty for disclosing secret information to up to 10 years' imprisonment - a measure that could lead to journalists being jailed.

A second bill, targeting so-called ""foreign fighters"", is set to be introduced to the Senate on Wednesday afternoon.

""It is a lamentable fact but an unavoidable truth that Australia at the moment needs the protection of intelligence services perhaps as never before,"" Brandis told the Senate on Wednesday.

""Certainly there has been no time since the Cold War - or perhaps even no time including the Cold War - when the domestic threat posed by those who would do us harm has been so immediate, so acute, so present in the minds of our people.

""Tragically we saw that demonstrated as recently as overnight in Melbourne.""

At the media conference, Lay said Haider had been under investigation and recently had his passport cancelled.

""There's certainly information that he was present at the shopping center in the last week or so with the flag that appeared to be an ISIS flag,"" he said.

""It's not an offense but clearly it drew our attention to this person and we had a conversation with this person.""

Haider, whose family are from Afghanistan, had reportedly been associated with the radical Islamic group called Al-Furqan, although it is understood he had recently moved away from the group.

Based in Springvale, in Melbourne's south-east, associates of Al-Furqan were the targets of terrorism raids by Victoria Police and the Australian Federal Police in 2012.

Speaking from Hawaii, en route to New York where he will attend a UN Security Council meeting, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the shooting death was a ""nasty"" incident that showed the threat from extremists was real.

""Obviously, this indicates that there are people in our community who are capable of very extreme acts,"" he said in a video statement. ""It also indicates that the police will be constantly vigilant to protect us against people who would do us harm.""

Abbott said he had spoken to the wives of both police officers involved.

Senator Brandis is due to introduce the Counter-Terrorism Legislation Amendment (Foreign Fighters) Bill on Wednesday afternoon.

The legislation will be referred to a parliamentary committee to be reviewed but Labor leader Bill Shorten has written to the Prime Minister saying Labor ""will do all in its power"" to expedite the bill's passage.

However, shadow attorney-general Mark Dreyfus said he was concerned about some elements of the legislation, including the measure to make it illegal to travel to an area of terrorist activity.

""On its face, it's a provision which appears to conflict with the right to freedom of movement, the right to the presumption of innocence, the right to silence,"" he said.

He said there were questions about whether that provision was "" workable"".


SYDNEY, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Australia's Olympic team have been welcomed home has heroes at a rousing reception at Sydney's international airport on Wednesday.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull greeted the some 300 Aussie Olympic athletes as they departed the chartered Qantas Airways flight, saying the nation should be proud of their achievements.

"They are all champions, every single one of them," Turnbull told Australia's Seven Network just prior to the plane's arrival.

Australia took a team of 421 athletes, with the remainder to arrive on another charter on Thursday.

The celebration however has been dampened by the public spat between the Australian Sports Commission and the Australian Olympic Committee on funding after Australia failed to achieve its top five ranking.

Australia finished tenth on the medals table with eight gold, the same as its dismal performance at London 2012 following the poor performance of its swim team.

The authors of a landmark 2009 report on the future of Australian sport on Wednesday said despite the athletes doing "incredibly well at Rio," the country needs a rethink on what they wish to achieve as a top-five finish is an "unrealistic expectation" and "hugely unfair to our athletes".

"Our view is we should define the sports we wish to succeed in and back these up with reasonable investment," the authors of the Crawford report wrote in an opinion editorial, published by News Corp on Wednesday.

Investment into the medal count for Australian athletes come at a huge dollar cost that competes for funding with other community and sports programs, th.
