Two people died, along with an Islamist gunman, after commandos stormed a cafe in Sydney, Australia, to bring to an end a 16-hour siege.
Local media have named those who died as Lindt cafe manager Tori Johnson, and lawyer Katrina Dawson.
Four people were injured, including a policeman hit by shotgun pellets.
Central Sydney was put in lockdown as the gunman, identified as an Iranian refugee, seized dozens of hostages yesterday.
The Lindt Chocolat Cafe is located in Martin Place, a busy shopping area in Sydney's financial district.Related story published below :http://goo.gl/74RZKn
