The 16-hour Sydney hostage crisis came to a tragic end in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Two hostages, along with the Islamist gunman, were killed after police stormed a café in Sydney at around 2:10am local time.
The 50-year-old Iranian captor, who had taken 17 people hostage inside the Lindt chocolate cafe located in the city's business district, was Man Haron Monis – a self-proclaimed "spiritual healer" who was granted political asylum in Australia in 1996.
The two hostages who died were identified as 34-year-old Lindt cafe manager Tori Johnson and 38-year-old Sydney lawyer Katrina Dawson.
Six people were injured, including three women and a police officer who are being treated for gunshot wounds.

Commuters return to work on Tuesday. Sydney's central business district had been on lockdown after the siege unfolded Monday, forcing the evacuation of nearby offices.
Crowds congregate at Martin Place to lay flowers for the victims who died in the siege.
Abdul Rahman and Sam Tiger, devout Muslims from the Macarthur region who had earlier come into the city to pray for the hostages, pose on Philip Street, near the café.
After the siege began, Australians took to social media to show solidarity with the Muslim community using the Twitter hashtag "I'll ride with you", offering to accompany Muslims - concerned about an anti-Islam backlash - on public transport. Sydney is home to around half of the country's 500,000 Muslims, with many commuting into the city for work.
