Abbott's comments come, with Australia picking up the pieces after a 16-hour siege in a central Sydney cafe in which an Iranian-born man, who unfurled a flag with Arabic writing, took 17 hostages.

The gunman, who had a history of extremism, and two hostages died as police stormed the eatery early yesterday, sparking an outpouring of grief for the innocent victims.
