Another potential muslim terrorist slips through the net - this time in Australia
Australian PM Julia Gillard has ordered a high-level probe into apparent intelligence and immigration failures that meant an Egyptian asylum-seeker convicted of terrorism charges was housed for nearly a year in low-security detention.
Facing a sustained parliamentary assault over the apparent security breach, the Prime Minister bowed to pressure and ordered the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security to find out why the man - who was known to have been the subject of an Interpol red alert - was not moved more quickly to a high-security facility.
The nation's top domestic security agencies, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation and the Australian Federal Police, will be investigated along with the Immigration Department.
