Citizenship : Australia plans to relax rules

Australia has revealed plans to increase government powers to strip citizenship from extremists and to control the movements of Australian fighters who return home from the battlefields of Syria and Iraq.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Thursday outlined the contentious bills, some of which he wants passed by parliament this year.

He also wants passed this year cybersecurity laws that would force global technology companies to help police unscramble encrypted messages sent by criminals.

The extremist threat to Australia was highlighted two weeks ago when a Somali-born Australian fatally stabbed one man and injured two others before police shot the assailant dead in a downtown Melbourne street.

This week, three Australian men of Turkish descent were charged with planning an Islamic State group-inspired mass-casualty attack in Melbourne.
