Tony Abbott to announce compensation for terrorism victims

Prime Minister Tony Abbott is today expected to announce compensation for Australian victims of terrorism and their families. 

Mr Abbott is today visiting the Bali bombing memorial site, ahead of the east Asia Summit in Brunei.

Under the new compensation scheme, Australian victims of terrorism attacks, since 2001, can apply for payments up to $75,000. 

Mr Abbott says it is a scheme he has campaigned hard for, to provide some form of justice for those who have suffered from terrorism.
