An Australian man has been arrested and charged with terror offenses after he allegedly published videos online in which he called on other people to kill Jews, the country’s 9 News reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the 50-year-old suspect, a resident of the Adelaide suburb of Flinders Park whose name and image have been withheld, made videos that included “graphic and explicit instructions” and “physical demonstrations on how to commit the acts.”

The report said the videos still can be seen online and have drawn thousands of views.

Australian police officers told 9 News there were no “current or impending threats” related to the arrest.
