Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Sydney Siege

BY Prime Minister Tony Abbott

Dec 16 – Australians awoke this morning that the siege in Martin Place has ended.

Our thoughts and prayers are with families  of the two decease hostages, the wounded and the other hostages.

I commend the courage and professionalism of the New South Wales Police and other emergency services involved.

Early this morning I was briefed on developments by New South Wales authorities.

The National Security Committee of the Cabinet will meet shortly to review the situation.
