SYDNEY (AP) — Australia’s prime minister says the gunman who took hostages in a Sydney cafe was “a deeply disturbed individual’ known to the police but he was not on a terror watch list.
SYDNEY (AP) — Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has laid flowers at a makeshift memorial in Sydney for the victims of a central city cafe siege which left three people dead.
“It’s over. Thank God.” These were my thoughts on waking in Brisbane this morning to news that the Sydney siege had ended at 2am last night, sadly with the loss of two hostages. The gunman responsible for the 16-hour siege at the Lindt cafe in the city’s CBD was also killed.
At 2am Sydney time police raided the Lindt cafe in the city’s central Martin Place to free hostages taken early Monday. Two hostages of the 17 are dead, as is the single gunman who held them, Man Haron Monis. Five of those 17 had previously escaped.
SYDNEY (AP) — Sydney police say three people have died, including the gunman, during a hostage crisis that ended when officers stormed a downtown cafe.
