They haven't specified yet. They usually stay back, ready to go in, but don't do so unless something happens which leads them to believe the hostages are in immediate danger. Perhaps he either shot one or lead them to believe he was about to.

RE: Hostage terrorists #sydneysiege
Australian police have confirmed three people, including the hostage-taker, were killed during a day-long standoff at a Sydney cafe. The asshole was a 50-year-old Iranian immigrant - Man Haron Monis. It seems he was a "self-proclaimed" Muslim cleric who was facing charges including sexual assault and accessory to murder in separate cases.

Quote:Early in the crisis, hostages were seen standing with their hands pushed up against the windows. A black flag with the Islamic creed known as the Shahada written in white could be seen through the glass.

The phrase is a declaration of faith for Muslims and translates to "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger." Radical Islamists, including the Islamic State group, have co-opted the Shahada to use on their flags.

What an asshole... he needed to be dead.

Sydney siege gunman Man Maron Monis was on bail on two separate and serious matters: more than 40 sexual assault charges involving seven alleged victims; and as an accessory to the murder of his former partner.

WTF, why was this asshole running around free?

Excellent point F.C.
Parole is a highly contentious issue in this country.
