Australian terror plan to hide plane bomb in Barbie revealed

Lebanon’s interior minister has claimed a terror cell attempted to blow up a flight from Australia with bombs hidden in a Barbie doll and a meat grinder.

He said Amer Khayyat planned to detonate an improvised explosive device 20 minutes into an Abu-Dhabi bound flight with 400 passengers onboard.

The plan was allegedly only aborted after the luggage containing the devices was deemed overweight.

Four men were arrested in Sydney counter-terrorism raids in July.

Two were released but Lebanese-Australian brothers Khaled Khayat, 49, and Mahmoud Khayat, 32 were charged with “preparing for, or planning, a terrorist attack”.

Australian authorities at the time confirmed the arrests related to a credible plot to bring down an aeroplane.

It then emerged the target was an Etihad flight from Sydney on 15 July.

Australian Federal Police (AFP) Deputy Commissioner Michael Phelan described the plan as “one of the most sophisticated plots that has ever been attempted on Australian soil”.

He said components for the IED were sent through international cargo from IS members to the men in Australia.

It is claimed a fourth brother, Tarek, is a senior member of the so-called Islamic State in Raqqa.
