Australian State leaders help federal government to beef up terror laws

State leaders agreed Tuesday to help Australia's federal government enforce tough new anti-terror laws that Muslims fear could target the Islamic community, but the state leaders pushed through a condition that the proposed laws expire in a decade.

Prime Minister John Howard also gave in to state leaders' demands that the raft of laws, which have raised concerns about an erosion of civil rights, be reviewed after five years.

He said drafts of the new laws should be ready in two-to-three weeks, reports the AP.
