Australian police being trained to shoot terrorists on sight

  • Police from Australia's New South Wales (NSW) state are being trained to shoot terrorists on sight rather than try to contain them and negotiate, a media report said on Tuesday. Acting Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas said the new approach was needed in the terrorist environment where "you're dealing with someone who is there with a preconceived aim of dying and who wants to kill as many people as they possibly can". He said in that scenario, it was "far more urgent for police to intervene". (Source: IANS)
