A Brisbane mother will face court next month on charges of
supporting terrorism after being arrested while trying to
leave Australia with her four young children.
The 29-year-old woman was charged as a result of a
counter-terrorism operation that focuses on foreign
incursions, an Australian Federal Police spokesman told AAP.
Detectives from the NSW joint counter-terrorism team stopped
the woman at Sydney airport on May 3 as she tried to board an
international flight with her children.
The woman is believed to be the wife of Mohamed Elomar, who
is reportedly fighting in Syria.
She was living in Brisbane at the time of her arrest but her
husband is believed to be from Sydney.
She's due to appear before Sydney's Downing Centre Local
Court on June 2.
Mohamed Elomar's uncle, also named Mohamed, was jailed for
plotting to blow up a Sydney army base and his brother Ahmed
is due to be sentenced for his role in the 2012 Hyde Park
