A 16-YEAR-OLD girl and a 20-year-old man were arrested in Sydney yesterday on suspicion of financing a terrorist group, reportedly Islamic State.

The arrests did not relate to a planned terrorist attack in Australia and there was no imminent threat as a result of yesterday's activity, the Federal Police's Michael Phelan said.
