Australia's military have been handed new powers to assist in responding to terrorist attacks. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull made the announcement in Holsworthy on Monday, explaining Special Forces soldiers will be involved in training law enforcement officers. Mr Turnbull was pictured standing in front of masked, heavily armed special forces, positioned with hi-tech weaponry (top right), as he made the announcement. The soldiers appeared almost threatening, dressed in full camouflage gear, holding assault rifles, and some were wearing gas masks (left). Mr Turnbull also inspected some of the Defence Force's weaponry, which was laid on a table (bottom right).
