Parramatta shooting suspects linked to Baryalei terror raids

THREE of four men arrested on Wednesday morning over last week's fatal terrorist attack at Parramatta police headquarters were targeted in Australia's biggest counter-terrorism raids a year ago.

Police arrested four males aged between 16 and 22 in counter-terror raids across western Sydney.

A fifth person, a 24-year-old man from Merrylands, was also arrested but was not detained as part of the joint counter-terror raids operation.

He was arrested as a result of an outstanding warrant for identity fraud and other fraud matters.

Police allege the four men arrested in the counter-terrorism operation are directly linked to the fatal shooting of police accountant Curtis Cheng outside the Parramatta police HQ last Friday.
