[SYDNEY] Two men have been arrested in Sydney in a "counter terrorism operation", Australian police said on Wednesday, a week after a 16-hour siege in a central city cafe ended with the deaths of two hostages and a gunman with radical Islamist sympathies.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Tuesday security officials had intercepted a heightened level of"terrorist chatter" in the aftermath of the Sydney cafe siege.

Police said they would provide more details later on Wednesday.
