Terrorism accused waives bail application

THE Sydney man charged on Tuesday with planning a terrorist attack did not apply for bail yesterday when his case was mentioned in court.

Tamim Khaja, 18, is also accused of trying to travel to Syria to join Islamic State.

Police allege he had been scouting sites in Sydney for an attack and trying to acquire a gun.

Outside court, Mr Khaja's lawyer told the ABC his client would apply for bail at a later date.

The former Epping Boys High School student came to the attention of police after a tip-off to the National Security Hotline last year.
