An investigation has been launched into the police operation which ended a siege in a cafe in Sydney, Australia.

Two people died, along with the gunman, as police commandos stormed the cafe in Martin Place in the heart of Sydney early on Tuesday morning.

Tributes are being paid to the victims and flags are flying at half mast on all NSW government buildings.

Police are also investigating the motives of the attacker, Man Haron Monis, a known extremist and criminal.

He was well known to the Australian police and was on bail charged with being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife. He was also facing more than 40 sexual and indecent assault charges.
