Queensland's shocking terror suspect list revealed

SWAMPED Queensland counter-terrorism police are monitoring more than 100 suspects in the state's southeast - a shocking figure never before revealed.

The intense physical and digital surveillance has sparked a desperate call for more high-tech resources before the state is rocked by a catastrophic event.

The Courier-Mail understands the number of those monitored is more than 100 but fewer than 150. They are on the list because of intelligence, behaviour or their associates and family.

Most are in the state's southeast corner. They include teens but range in age, sex and employment status.
