Prime Minister Tony Abbott today, offered sympathy to Pakistan after a deadly Taliban raid on a school, as Australia deals with the fallout from a cafe siege.

Abbott said the carnage at the school in the north-western city of Peshawar, in which at least 141 people died, mostly children, was hard to comprehend.

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.
