Teen on last leg of explosive IS jaunt LEBANON: A Sydney teen arrested on suspicion of terrorism in Lebanon was preparing to become a suicide bomber. The 18-year-old dual national, identified only by his initials AM, has been detained in Lebanon pending a court appearance on allegations he was preparing to travel to Syria to join Islamic State. Lebanons Internal Security Forces said the teen was born in Lebanon in 1999, but had resided in Sydney for several years and became radicalised in Australia after watching IS videos and propaganda online. About a week before his arrest, he contacted a cadre of the Daesh (Islamic State) organisation in Syria and showed his willingness to carry out a suicide or explosive operation in Lebanon, the IFS said. He was instructed to do so. He asked the cadre, if this was not possible, to help him move into the Syrian territory to fight in the ranks of Daesh. He was arrested before the answer to his request was received. The security forces said the teen had an Australian passport and a permit to travel before he arrived in Lebanon on August 20, where he had been placed under surveillance. They said his decision to travel to Lebanon was an attempt to avoid drawing attention of Australian authorities. The Information Division of the ISF arrested the teen and accused him of being a member of Islamic State, and attempting to travel to Syria. The investigation revealed that he had resided in Sydney for several years and embraced extremist ideology by following the publications and videos of the organisation on the internet, they said. After his arrival in Lebanon he continued (communicating) with members of Daesh in Syria via the internet. ELLEN WHINNETT He embraced extremist ideology (of Islamic State) Oswald had no CIA links US: Government documents released yesterday regarding John F. Kennedys assassination say allegations that Lee Harvey Oswald was connected to the CIA were totally unfounded. A 1975 CIA memo says a thorough search of agency records in and outside the US was conducted to determine whether Oswald had been used by the agency or connected with it in any conceivable way. The memo said the search came up empty. The memo said no other US agency was seen to have used Oswald. PNG: Residents in villages near the shutdown detention centre on Manus Island have demanded the asylum seekers barricaded inside be allowed to stay. The call came as Papua New Guinea authorities cracked down on food supplies being brought into the centre and, reportedly for the first time, commenced stopping asylum seekers from entering and leaving the naval base where it is sited. Locals at Nutt Point, many of whom were employed within the centre before it closed, spoke out yesterday about the closure, saying they had a good relationship with the asylum seekers and did not share the same concerns being expressed by some other Manusians if they stayed in their district. The asylum seekers have been told they have to move to several sites on the outskirts of the islands main town of Lorengau. But the men have refused to move to the alternative centre, citing concerns for their personal security and suspected hostile attitudes from residents. Islanders want asylum seekers to stay put New twist for Pistorius SOUTH AFRICA: State prosecutors have told the Supreme Court of Appeal the six-year sentence for murder handed to Paralympic gold medallist Oscar Pistorius is shockingly lenient and asked for the right to launch an appeal. Pistorius was jailed in July last year after being found guilty on appeal of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. Prosecutors said the jail term was less than half the minimum 15-year sentence prescribed for murder.
