Australian government publishes terrorism advice leaflet

Australian government publishes terrorism advice leaflet:

The Australian government has published ‘Let’s look out for Australia: protecting our way of life from the terrorist threat,’ a document aimed at helping businesses and individuals protect themselves and the country from terrorist attack.

The advice goes hand-in-hand with a public information campaign encouraging Australians to ‘be alert but not alarmed’, and to report suspicious activity to the National Security Hotline on 1800 123 400.

The document includes:

* Advice from some of Australia’s foremost experts in counter-terrorism, including the Director-General of ASIO and the Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police;

* Guidance from the Director-General of Emergency Management Australia and the Commonwealth’s Chief Medical Officer; and

* Information about what to look out for and possible signs of terrorist activity.
