ONE of the two teenagers arrested on Wednesday after police acted on information the pair were allegedly preparing to behead someone in Sydney, has links to a convicted terrorist.

News Corp is reporting the threat of an attack was considered imminent when officers moved on the 16-year-olds in a laneway behind a mosque at lunchtime.

Police clad in protective gear acted on information the pair had purchased bayonets from a gun shop.

The Daily Telegraph reports one of the boys was known to counter-terrorism officers after he refused to stand for the national anthem last year.

The boy's father has been convicted for terror-related offences.
