ASIO: teen fights face of jihad claim as 'unjust, racist'
by Rachel Olding
At just 19 years old, Bankstown labourer Abu Bakr is the face of jihadism in Australia, ASIO says.
The outspoken teenager "holds an extreme ideology and is planning to travel in order to engage in militant extremism", the national spy agency has concluded.
On Sunday, Fairfax Media revealed Abu Bakr was one of at least 20 men whose passports have been cancelled by ASIO on the grounds they were prepared to engage in politically motivated violence or had a "jihadist mentality".
