“Frenchman Willie Brigitte was sent to Australia by Pakistani terrorists and planned to target military bases in Sydney, the French counter-terrorism unit DST alleges.” This from News.com.au, with thanks to Nicolei and Jean-Luc.
Brigitte’s key contact in Australia was a Pakistani man who was also believed to be part of the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba, DST deputy director Jean-Francois Clair told the Nine Network’s Sunday program.
This man, whom Sunday will name, used the Internet to view the layout of army bases and attempted to obtain chemical ingredients for explosives, the program will allege at the weekend.
The program cites the DST dossier on Brigitte compiled since he was deported from Australia in October last year.
“French terror suspect Willie Brigitte was sent to Australia by a Pakistani terrorist organisation and was in the process of considering which military targets the group would attack,” Sunday said in a statement.
