SYDNEY - Australian counter-terrorism police on Friday morning said they had raided multiple properties in Melbourne amid heightened fears of attacks by home-grown militants inspired by Islamic State.

"The Victorian Joint Counter Terrorism Team can confirm it has conducted operational activity in Craigieburn and Meadow Heights, Victoria," the Australian Federal Police said in a press release.

Authorities say they have thwarted a number of potential attacks, although there have been several "lone wolf" assaults in recent months, including the shooting death of a police accountant in Sydney in October last year.
