The drama in Sydney has ended: Three people dead and several woundedPosted by Jonas Christensen on December 15, 2014
SYDNEY, Australia – At 9.45 AM local time, a 16-hour siege started at a local café in Sydney, Australia. A 50-year-old Iranian cleric took several hostages and demanded to speak with the Prime Minister of Australia. Under the siege, he forced some of the hostages to wave with an Islamic flag, which some of the extremist groups in the Middle-East uses.
The police in Sydney later confirmed that the hostage taker was Man Monis, a man who was well known for his extremist actions in Australia.
After 16 hours where the police had tried to communicate with Man Monis, and many of the hostages had escaped, the police stormed the building. Stun grenades were used to confuse the hostage taker, and afterwards shots were fired. This resulted in the death of the terrorist Man Monis.
Two hostages are dead and several wounded
One of the hostages died when the police stormed the building. We still do not know how the hostage died. There are several wounded hostages who have been taken to the hospital; two of them needed CPR at the crime scene, and one is believed to have died in the hospital.
