The Sydney Siege.







Behind the counter were workers Joel Herat, Jarrod Hoffman, Harriette Denny, Fiona Ma, Elly Chen, Bae Jieun and supervisor Paolo Vassallo.
Scant attention was paid to Monis, who sat with a bag at his feet.


Then, almost without warning, Monis was standing.
He drew a gun – which, although not confirmed by police, has been reported as either a short barrelled or sawn-off shotgun – and bellowed at customers to stand with their hands up.
