A convicted terrorist who once espoused the virtues of Osama Bin Laden will stay in an Australian prison after Victoria’s Supreme Court deemed him too risky to release.

Benbrika, 60, was jailed after authorities uncovered that he was the “guiding light” for a terrorist cell that was accused of planning attacks on high-profile targets and discussing the assassination of then-prime minister John Howard.
