    "Moments before police stormed an apartment where a gunman was holding a woman hostage, the phone at Channel 7 in Melbourne rang.

    Chief of staff John White picked up at 5.41pm and heard a man say the chilling words 'this is for IS, this is for Al Qaeda' while a woman screamed in the background.

    Police would not confirm if it was the man who went down in a hail of bullets as he burst out of the room and wounded three policemen.

    ISIS has claimed responsibility

    "Islamic State is claiming responsibility for the Melbourne hostage attack that left the gunman and another man dead.

    'The attack in Melbourne, Australia was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State in response to the call for targeting the subjects of the coalition states,' the group's Amaq news agency said."

    The gunman at the centre of the incident has been named in the media as Yacqub Khayre who was acquitted over the Holsworthy terror plot in 2009.

    WHY WAS HE ON PAROLE AND WHY WAS HE IN AUSTRALIA AT ALL?

    Daily Mail
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...lent-past.html

    An ice-addicted African refugee on parole who had links to Somalia-based terrorist group al-Shabaab was behind an ISIS-inspired attack on the streets of Melbourne.

    Yacqub Khayre murdered one man, wounded three police officers and took a woman hostage in a dramatic two-hour siege in a hotel on Bay Street, Brighton, on Monday.

    (...)

    But questions have since risen over why the man, who carried out a violent meth-fuelled home invasion just months after he was accused of planning a suicide attack against Sydney's Holsworthy army barracks, wasn't just deported back to Somalia.

    It's also believed Khayre may have taken off his GPS ankle bracelet to carry out the attack covertly, inspired by instructions in a recent IS propaganda magazine.

    Issue nine of Rumiya, released in May, encourages terrorists to 'lure' hostages and 'keep victims alive and restrained... (to) spread terror into the hearts of disbelievers'.

    Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said there were 'very grave questions' about why the known violent offender was out on the streets on parole.

    'How was this man on parole? He had a long record of violence,' Mr Turnbull said. 'He was known to have connections - at least in the past - with violent extremism.'

    The Holsworthy plot was in 2009, not months ago.
