Two fathers and their sons are the four men arrested 'over Islamic extremist cell's plot to blow up a flight from Australia to Dubai


Two father and son duos are reportedly the four men accused of planning to blow up a plane with a homemade bomb in an 'Islamic-inspired' terror plot in Australia.

It is understood the men planned to detonate the device on a flight from Sydney to the Middle East, possibly Dubai, Seven News reported.
The accused, whose names are known to Daily Mail Australia but not yet confirmed by police, were arrested in dramatic raids across Sydney on Saturday night.

Kitchen mincers are believed to be among the everyday items the alleged bombers used to form the lethal explosive, according to the Herald Sun.

The device was 'ready to go' as counter-terrorism police stormed properties across the city's west and inner-east.
