/ 12:03 PM October 17, 2014

BRISBANE, Australia— A man charged a month ago in an Australian court with supporting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria is facing a fresh accusation that he had also planned a terrorist attack in Australia.

Agim Kruezi has been in custody since Sept. 10 when he was arrested during a series of police raids in the Queenland state capital Brisbane and neighboring Logan that culminated a yearlong counterterrorism investigation.

Kruezi was charged in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday with offenses including transporting a firearm in preparation for a terrorist act, and possessing machetes, knives, balaclavas and military fatigues in preparation for a terrorist act.

He was charged last month with making preparations and raising funds for incursions into Syria and Iraq with intentions of engaging in hostile activity.
