We'll take it from here, boys: Armed to the teeth with assault rifles and explosives - the terrifying gear soldiers will wear as they take on terrorists on Australian soil

Turnbull joins heavily armed soldiers for defence overhaul

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).

This happened in South Africa, I just hope we here in Australia don't go down the same route!

 

Shocking moment couple narrowly avoid being carjacked outside their home after they pull into the driveway then spot a gunman spring from his car... but reverse at speed to escape 

 

The CCTV footage shows the moment the woman, named as Anelle Hills from Midrand in Johannesburg, Gauteng Province, north-eastern South Africa, steps out of the car with her dog at her side.She had just returned home with her husband Roger in their luxury white Range Rover. A gold C-Class Mercedes Benz can be seen driving near them in the background. Then a man steps out of the car and walks towards them with a gun in his hand. Mrs Hills quickly realises and jumps back into the car and her husband quickly reverses away from the car. Mr Hills drives backwards down the road away from the would-be carjackers.
