Sydney siege: more hostages flee Martin Place cafe

Sydney siege: more hostages flee Martin Place cafe – live

LIVE Updated 5m ago

Five people have been seen running out of a cafe in Sydney’s CBD where at least one armed gunman took ‘fewer than 30’ customers and staff hostage on Monday morning, but it remains unclear whether they escaped or were freed. The cafe remains surrounded by heavily armed New South Wales police. Some inside the cafe were apparently forced to stand at the cafe’s windows holding up a flag bearing what appears to be the Islamic creed

  1. BTW the Muslim murderer in the Sydney cafe could have been taken out by police snipers many, many times during the seige with NO hostages injured and NO other lives lost. Two snipers focus on a head shot at the same time. The first bullet shatters the glass and probably hits its mark anyway but the second one is assured of hitting the mark because there will be no bullet deflection caused by the glass. This is not rocket science but is police and military sniper training 101 and was depicted in the movie with Tom Hanks as the container ship Captain. Remember when the snipers killed the terrorists in the boat – and this was in the rolling seas! Seems like the politically correct crap from the NSW police higher ups are responsible for the hostage deaths and injuries. I wonder if in all the backslapping any of the police will actually be held responsible for their atrocious negligent behaviour?
