Australian Police End Sydney Cafe Siege


Australian police ended a 16-hour stand-off at a Sydney cafe on December 15, storming the premises after a series of loud bangs. Shortly before, a number of hostages fled the building. At least two other people were taken away on stretchers after the operation. The hostage-taker had been identified as Man Haron Monis, an Iranian-born Muslim cleric. (Reuters)
