Federal Trade Minister Andrew Robb urges Muslim leaders to 'lead charge against young people being radicalised'
by Dan Conifer
A senior Federal Government minister has urged Australia's Muslim leaders to increase efforts to prevent extremism in Australia.
Trade Minister Andrew Robb said local Muslim figures needed to show greater leadership to prevent radicalisation after two men were charged over their alleged involvement in an Islamic State-inspired Anzac Day terror plot in Melbourne.
At least 150 Australians have been or are currently overseas fighting with extremists in Iraq and Syria.
