Sydney Hostage Standoff Update: 5 Escape, Gunman Identified; Demands Islamic State Flag, Conversation With Prime Minister (ZeroHedge, Dec 15, 2014):

The Sydney hostage standoff at the Lindt chocolate store on Martin Place continues well into its 13th hour, where the latest news is that five people have escaped with others still held inside as neighboring blocks remain locked down, authorities said ABC reports. The first three people who fled sprinted out of the Lindt Chocolat Cafe about six hours into the standoff, while two women wearing aprons frantically ran from a side exit and into the arms of heavily-armed SWAT team police officers waiting outside. At the same time, media personalities said they received calls from hostages during the standoff. It remains unclear exactly how many people remain inside the cafe.

  1. Oh, please. This story has been beaten to death by US media, using it to cover up the real stories, like the falling markets.
    You don’t need to help them. This story does not warrant international coverage.

  2. I checked the financial channels, all three are telling outright lies about ISIS, and anything but what is relevant to the markets.
    One can get no truth on US media. Zero Hedge is far better. I don’t believe everything he says, but he is closer to the mark than US financial media……..
