A man arrested in Australian counterterrorism raids in September is facing fresh charges of preparing a terrorist attack on home soil, police said on Friday.

Agim Kruezi, 22, was initially accused of recruiting, funding and sending jihadist fighters to Syria after he was detained in Brisbane on Sept 10.

He is now facing a new charge of committing an act in preparation for a terrorist act by transporting a firearm, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison, authorities said.
