Australia strips citizenship from alleged Islamic State recruiter

The Australian government has stripped citizenship from a man it believes is a top recruiter for Islamic State, Australia's home affairs minister said on Saturday.
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said in an emailed statement to Reuters that Melbourne-born Neil Prakash has been stripped of his citizenship.
Prakash has been in Turkey on trial for terrorism-related activities since being caught there in October 2016 after leaving Islamic State-controlled territory.
He is wanted in Australia over terrorism-related activities including an alleged plot to behead a Melbourne police officer on Anzac Day.
