    A gunman has taken several people hostages at a cafe in the Australian city of Sydney.

    Pictures on Australian television showed people with their hands up against a window, and a black flag with Arabic writing.

    The cafe in Sydney's central business district has been surrounded by armed police. - bbc news

    AS i said its ongoing but they think the hostages just had to hold up an ISIS flag at the window

    Surely we cant blame Muslims for this one . Oh er - maybe its just a lands rights campaigner with a black flag with Arabic writing .

    Yes, they have evacuated the Opera House & Airport on red alert.

    There are reports of an incident at the Sydney Opera House. A NSW police spokeswoman says the nature of the incident is not known, other than the fact that officers are there.

    Where's bruce Willis when you need him ?

    From national security correspondent David Wroe: "The flag being shown in the window is not an Islamic State flag, nor one for the other best-known jihadist group Jabhat al-Nusra. Rather, it appears to be a Shahada flag, which represents a general expression of faith in Islam, though has been co-opted by various jihadist groups.

    Greg Barton, a terrorism expert from Monash University, says that "getting hold of an (Islamic State) flag would be quite difficult, and people will make do with what they have got".

    That means it doesn't help confirm or rule out that the hostage-takers' affiliation is with Islamic State or any other group."
