Australian Federal Police and Victorian state police have reportedly raided homes across Melbourne as part of an anti-terrorism crackdown.

"I can confirm that Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police executed a number of search warrants in Melbourne this morning as part of an anti-terrorism investigation," a police spokeswoman was quoted as saying by The Age newspaper on Thursday.

The raids were part of an investigation into the funding of terrorist organisations.
