Australian police have cordoned off one of Sydney’s main business areas, with reports that hostages are being held in a Lindt chocolate shop cafe. Part of Martin Place, home to the Reserve Bank of Australia, commercial banks and close to the New South Wales state parliament, was closed off by armed officers. Live television footage showed patrons inside a cafe standing with their hands pressed against the windows. A black and white flag similar to those used by Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria was also visible. New South Wales Police tweeted: “A police operation is under way in Martin Place, Sydney’s CBD. People are advised to avoid the area.”

Terrorists were today holding up to 12 hostages in an armed siege in a cafe in Sydney where an extremist flag was being held up in a window. Witnesses reported seeing staff and customers sobbing as they were forced to stand with their hands pressed against the windows of the Lindt cafe.  At least two gunmen are involved in the siege but dozens of armed police have sealed off the streets surrounding the site. One gunman is believed to have a shotgun and possibly an explosive device. Martin Place has been shut down and scores of police are surrounding the building after the alarm was raised about 9.45am.

British embassy closing in Libya amid escalating violence in Tripoli


downloadWell here we go, another War..and War = Money 

Like Iraq, the USA, UK and allies have turned a stable country into a War Zone and safe haven for terrorists

The Foreign Office is closing its embassy in Tripoli amid escalating violence in the Libyan capital.  Many staff members were evacuated earlier this week and British citizens have been told to leave the country immediately. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is helping British nationals leave but warned it will not be able to provide assistance after operations are suspended on Monday. Only the ambassador and core staff remain in the building and are expected to return to the UK in the coming days. Fierce fighting between rival militias has spread northwards through Tripoli, into the area where the consulate is situated, and shots were fired at embassy staff in an attempted carjacking last week

Greece evacuated embassy staff and more than one hundred Chinese and European nationals from Libya on Friday with a navy frigate sailing back to the Greek port of Piraeus

A spokesman for the FCO said: “The protection of our staff is paramount, and we assess that the current environment in Tripoli does not allow us to operate safely. We have therefore decided temporarily to relocate UK-based staff from the country.”  Libya has descended into chaos since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi during the Arab Spring in 2011. The rebels were supported by British and French air strikes in the supposed interests of the Libyan people but they were soon accused of carrying out massacres themselves, with at least 42 protesters killed in Tripoli last November. The former Prime Minister, Ali Zeidan, was voted out of office earlier this year and has fled the country as the Government struggled to fill the power vacuum left by Gaddafi’s downfall. Rival militias struggling for power and wealth have now created a state of lawlessness in areas of the country. The US has already closed its embassy and France and Greece are among other countries to have evacuated citizens. Violence broke out at the border crossing of Ras Jdir on Friday as police shot in the air and fired tear gas to stop a group of Egyptians who tried to storm the border in their desperation to flee Libya.

There are believed to be between 100 and 300 British citizens in the north African country. The ambassador, Michael Aron, said the decision to leave was taken reluctantly. Writing on Twitter, he added: “Fighting has spread to where we live in Suraj and the risk of getting caught in the crossfire is too great. Very sad.” On Wednesday, British Airways suspended flights to and from Tripoli until Tuesday due to the deteriorating security situation at the country’s main international airport.

An FCO spokesman added: “Fighting has intensified in Tripoli, including around the British embassy compounds. In the light of the deteriorating security situation, we are taking steps temporarily to suspend operations at the British embassy in Tripoli after the planned assisted departure of British Nationals. “The UK government has changed its travel advice to reflect the ongoing security situation. We advise against all travel to Libya and urge British nationals in Libya to leave through commercially available means.”
