Expect disruptions. Many police. Roads blocked off now around the area.
Lindt cafe is an interesting choice.
Looking like Islamic extremists or their supporters. ISIS flag may have been displayed.
Well I'm not going into the city anymore! Christmas sales will be down because of this.
Lindt cafe is VERY close to the RBA. Maybe Stevens organised it to put more downwards pressure on the AUS dollar.
I go there to buy my Christmas chocolates.
That's alright, I only go to the darling Harbour one. Wonder why they picked the place, doesn't really put across any political statement.
May be a message about extravagant Western decadence. Or they're worried about our blood sugar.
Good place really, you can have an ice chocolate and cake.
But on a serious note, this will have a bigger impact then if it was in a bank. As it shows it can happen anywhere! and therefore cause more fear in the general public.
If this is based around Islamic extremism I kind of expect it to end badly compared to it being simply gunman trying to rob a business
wtf .... it is a chaos here ....
Next to the reserve bank?
Lindt refused to go halal, Cadbury did?
Next to the Cenotaph?
a VERY well known public place?
The flag reads " there is no god but allah and mohammad is the messenger of god " or something similar.. just heard it on the news .so its definitely islam based
It's directly across from Chanel 7 so may have been picked for maximum exposure.
If we didnt have archaic gun laws it would be over already.
There was an anti terror raid last night at Beecroft & a 25 year old guy arrested according to the abc news that im watching ..maybe its got something to do with that ?
If I brought a silver dirham off ebay for $30 drew a picture of mohmed on it and sold it for $40 did I make a prophet?
Seriously though, how about enough is enough
It's interesting how the word gunman has been inflated over the past 100 years.
syd opera house evacuation due to a suss package.
Just noticed the SMH has now blurred faces in the window.
I think so too because these extremists hold the (false) belief that if they die in the cause of their religion they will become a martyr.
I would of thought Chanel 5 would have more impact.
Separate names with a comma.
