The Australian Federal Police on Thursday morning confirmed a report that a high school teacher had assigned her class to plan a terrorist attack that would kill as many innocent Australians as possible.

An Australian police spokesman was quoted by news Web site WAtoday as saying that the teacher was exposing her students to a minimum jail term of at least 10 years, for collecting or making documents related to a terrorist attack.

The spokesman added that being "reckless as to whether these documents may assist or prepare for a terrorist attack" is also illegal.

On Wednesday, Australian education officials had stressed that the teacher had no intent to promote terrorism.
