[Excerpts]

ADELAIDE’S most terror-prone sites will be identified by the council in a bid to thwart potential attacks.
...
Cr Antic moved that council work with state and federal governments to develop and implement strategies to identity and address those spaces and events seen as being most at risk.
...
There would also be a presumption against parole for any convicted offender who had demonstrated support for, or had links to, terrorist activity.
...
Also on Tuesday, Muslim Adelaideans took to Rundle Mall in the CBD to speak out against terrorist attacks and encourage more awareness of their faith.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Adelaide spokesman Waleed Shah stood in the mall and took questions from passers by.

“There’s be a recent cry from the public for Muslim leaders to speak up and show the Australian community that they’re against what is happening around the world,” Mr Shah, 25, said.

“We’re just trying to raise awareness. I’m just hoping that people will appreciate what we’re doing.

“We want people to know that we’re a very transparent community, there’s nothing to hide.

“It’s the Muslim community’s responsibility to make people feel safe.

Mr Shah said he would support legal changes “to protect the people of Australia” if they were introduced by a democratically elected government.
