Australia has passed new laws to strip

The bill, approved by both sides of the
upper house late on Thursday, is one of
several measures introduced to fight violent

the laws would apply in "very limited cir-

"Dual nationals who engage in terrorism
are betraying their allegiance to this country
and do not deserve to be Australian cit-
izens," Brandis said on Friday.
He told the Senate it was "a significant
piece of legislation which will enhance
Australia s counterterrorism architecture."
The laws do not allow for anyone to be
The government had amended the bill,
introduced to the lower house in June, to

Germany joins anti-Isil fight in Syria
to support the French aircraft carrier Charles de
Gaulle, which Paris has dispatched to the region.
The international coalition has stepped up its cam-
paign against the group following last month s deadly
terrorist attacks in Paris. Isil claimed responsibility
for the massacre in which 130 people were killed.
Merkel s conservative-led coalition, which included
the left-leaning Social Democrats, controls about 80
per cent of the Bundestag vote.
The opposition hard-left Die Linke as well as mem-
bers of the environmental Greens had signalled their
intention to vote against the military mission.
A majority of Germans back the government s
plans to support France and other allies to defeat
Isil, according to a poll released on Thursday by the
state broadcaster ARD.
While 58 per cent of those surveyed in the poll
said they agreed that Germany should offer military
support in the campaign against Isil, 37 per cent were
opposed. (Al Jazeera)
