UPDATE 10-Police storm Sydney cafe to end hostage siege, three dead

Heavily armed Australian police stormed a Sydney cafe early on Tuesday morning and freed terrified hostages held there at gunpoint, in a dramatic end to a 16-hour siege in which two captives and the attacker were killed.

Authorities have not publicly identified the gunman, but a police source named him as Man Haron Monis, an Iranian refugee and self-styled sheikh known for sending hate mail to the families of Australian troops killed in Afghanistan. He was charged last year with being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife but had been free on bail.

Dr. Myles Munroe was called home tonight in a plane crash along with his lovely wife Ruth, his daughter, Dr. Pinder, his Vice-President and 6 others.

He authored over 100 books, established a mega-church in the Bahamas, founded the International Third World Leaders Association and preached to millions over his years of ministry.
