Melbourne siege an act of terror, ISIS claims responsibility

10 Juin, 2017, 21:34 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The siege has ignited debate about local parole laws after it emerged Khayre had a history of violence and was released from jail past year following an aggravated burglary.

"He has recently done some jail time, he got out late past year and has been on parole at the time of this offending last night", he said. After a twp-hour siege when police tried to negotiate, Khayre walked out of the building firing a shotgun. The Australian authorities are treating it as a terrorist attack and are investigating whether Khayre had any established links with the group.

In the wake of recent terror attacks across the world, Mr Jones said authorities need 'to stop watching them (terrorists) and lock them up'. "He was recognized as a refugee under Australia's humanitarian migration program and later became a citizen, police said".

Three police officers were injured in the shootout.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said he would speak with state leaders Friday about changing state laws, so that risky criminals like Khayre were not released from prison on early parole.

"We're not seeing anything indicating that he has got some message from overseas to do this at all but, again, early days", said Victoria Police chief commissioner Graham Ashton.

The evidence pointing to terrorism first emerged with a call to a television station during the siege, in which a man said, "This is for IS", presumably a reference to the Islamic State, and, "This is for al-Qaeda".

Three police officers were hurt in a stand-off lasting more than an hour at an apartment building in the beachside suburb of Brighton, police said in a statement.

Police are yet to confirm Mr Hao's identity, but Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said the man was recently married and a father. Khayre was acquitted of a plot to attack Sydney's Holsworthy Barracks in 2009.

Sweeping police raids have taken place on the home that the Brighton siege gunman shared with his mother.

One police officer was shot in the neck and ear and two officers suffered wounds to their hands, but none of the wounds were life-threatening, Ashton said. The woman escaped unharmed.

"The advice that we have from the Victoria police.is that this terrorist attack was not part of a coordinated attack". Another hostage was killed by fragments of a bullet fired by police who stormed the cafe and killed the gunman, who was not affiliated to any militant groups and acted alone. It appears he was out on parole at the time of yesterday's attack, only having served three years of a five-year sentence.

He was jailed in 2012 over a violent home invasion and released six months ago.

"We'll look at that very closely, of course, and if there are any changes in any element of this act - which we're considering as an act of terror - then we stand ready to make them", Mr Andrews said of changes to parole.
