    A teenager discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with the ISIS symbol and setting it loose on police, according to prosecutors, NBC News reported.

    Sevdet Besim, 19, is accused of plotting a terror attack in Melbourne on Anzac Day — an annual public commemoration of Australia's war dead.

    Prosecutors also accuse Besim of communicating with a teenager overseas, as well as planning to run over and behead a police officer on Anzac Day, it said.

    Besim denied four charges of planning a terrorist act during a court appearance on Thursday, the Melbourne Age newspaper reported.
