11 terror suspects caught at our airports in past month

AUTHORITIES have intercepted 11 terror suspects at airports across the nation in less than a month.

News Corp Australia reported on Monday some of the suspects intercepted at Melbourne and Sydney were carrying images of beheadings on electronic devices.

Customs and Border Protection, Australian Federal Police and counter-terrorism units officers also seized tens of thousands of dollars in undeclared cash.

The suspects were intercepted for a range of reasons including being caught with violent material or luggage and visa inconsistencies.

Three devices were seized and several people were issued infringement notices.

One person was also denied entry to Australia.

Federal Justice Minister Michael Keenan, who was in Brisbane on Monday to oversee final G20 security preparations, refused to confirm the number of people detained at Australian airports.

The new Counter-Terrorism Units came into force in late August.
