SYDNEY: Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday that the likelihood of a terror attack in the country remains at the “probable” level, a day after a fatal stabbing in Melbourne that police said was inspired by Islamic State.

Australia has a five-level terror threat ranking system and “probable” is its midpoint. The threat likelihood has been set at probable since the five-level system was introduced in 2015.

Morrison told reporters that radical Islam posed a threat to the country. “I need to call it out. Radical, violent extremist Islam that opposes our very way of life,” he said.
