CANBERRA - Australia on Tuesday released what the government says is the world's first ever how-to-guide for combating radical Islamist propaganda in Southeast Asia, which it hopes will help disrupt local recruitment efforts by groups such as Islamic State.

Australia, a staunch US ally, has been on heightened alert for attacks by home-grown Islamist radicals since 2014 and authorities say they have thwarted a number of plots.

The 43-page document, entitled "Undermining Violent Extremist Narratives in South East Asia," will be accessible online and aims to provide tools to disrupt the winding path to radicalization, said Justice Minister Michael Keenan.
