Terrorist Storms Sydney Cafe, Force Hostages to Display Islamist Flag

Terrorist Storms Sydney Cafe, Force Hostages to Display Islamist Flag

Just after 10AM local time, an unidentified group attacked the Lindt Café in Martin Place, Sydney, Australia, the financial hub of the city. The men have captured 13 people and forced them to hold up and Islamic flag to the public. It is not confirmed, but local media reports the attack might be related to ISIS.

Two women were recorded holding up an Islamic flag, as Australian media report that it appears two armed men have stormed the café. There is not yet, however, consensus among Australian media regarding how many people are holding the hostages. 

Equally unclear are the suspects’ intentions, though sources have told Australia’s news.abc.au that the men taking the café hostage are allegedly demanding to speak to Prime Minister Tony Abbott live on the radio.
