Turnbull wants changes to parole after shootout

The network said it received a phone call Monday afternoon from a distressed woman who said she was involved in a hostage situation.

Police have resolved a hostage situation in Brighton shooting a man dead and rescuing a woman being held against her will.

Police who arrived at the address where Khayre held the 36-year-old Colombian woman hostage were caught in a crossfire when he emerged from the building brandishing a firearm.

Australian police also said they were investigating the siege as an act of terrorism after Daesh claimed responsibility via its Amaq news agency.

Khayre, a Somali refugee, was on parole for violent crimes and had previously been acquitted over a terrorist plot against Sydney's Holsworthy army barracks in 2009.

"This terrorist attack by a known criminal, a man who was only recently released on parole, is a shocking, cowardly crime", he said.

Police are investigating whether Mr Khayre was really linked to the terror group, since it sometimes claims responsibility for attacks where there is no proof of a connection.

He lived in the Melbourne suburb Roxburgh Park with his mother and police will search their home on Today, as well as continue work at the Bay St serviced apartment block.

One person was killed and three police officers were injured in the siege, which has been declared a terror attack.

Police name gunman in Melbourne hostage-taking
The court documents also showed that Khayre migrated as a child with his family to Australia through a Kenyan refugee camp. There was a terror attack in Melbourne, Australia, and the suspect was already known to authorities.

Police returned fire and he was shot and killed.

Police said the attacker made statements "around al Qaeda" and called a local television station making similar comments, reportedly: "This is for IS, this is for al Qaeda".

"To raise it to the next level means we have very specific intelligence an event will occur", he says.

Australian police are treating Monday's hostage taking incident in Melbourne as an "act of terrorism".

Tightening the parole system will be high on the agenda at a meeting of the prime minister and premiers on Friday after the Melbourne terrorist siege.

He did not specify the charges related to Khayre's parole. The plot was foiled and the Guardian reports Khayre was convicted and later acquitted of involvement in that plot. But it was too early to know if the gunman set out to target police or "seized the opportunity he thought was presented to him", Ashton said.

"... What is clear here is that we face a growing threat from Islamist terrorism in Australia in our region and around the world".

They say they have prevented 12 attacks on home soil since the threat level was raised in September 2014, including a foiled Christmas Day plot in Melbourne past year, with more than 60 people charged.

Last month, an Australian coroner criticised a decision which allowed bail to a gunman behind Sydney's deadly cafe siege in 2014.
