Alleged Islamic State fighter Neil Prakash has been extradited from Turkey to Australia to face terror charges.
The 31-year-old Australian-born man is scheduled to face a Darwin court on Friday, where an application will be made to move him to Victoria.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) said an investigation began in 2016 when Mr Prakash allegedly travelled to Syria to fight with Islamic State.

"Given the matter is now before the court, no further comment will be made."
