Victorian terror tweeter to be sentenced

A Melbourne man who used Twitter to threaten to kill police and urge Islamic State to behead captives will be sentenced tyoday.

Khodr Moustafa Taha, of Brunswick, has pleaded guilty to 10 charges, including using a carriage service to threaten, assaulting his mother and possessing swords and ammunition.

He took aim at Victoria Police, Prime Minster Tony Abbott and US President Barack Obama in a series of hate-filled Twitter rants, saying "An officer will die", in a tweet to Victoria Police in November.

He was bailed in January by Deputy Chief Magistrate Jelena Popovic, who praised the 35-year-old for fully complying with his court-assigned programmes.
