SYDNEY (AP) — A Sydney police spokeswoman has confirmed that there were fatalities during a hostage crisis that ended when officers stormed a downtown cafe.

The spokeswoman would not say how many people died or if the hostage taker was among them.

The woman, who could not be identified under police policy, said an investigation is underway because police were involved in an incident in which people died.

Heavily armed police stormed the cafe in the heart of Sydney early Tuesday, ending a siege by an Iranian-born gunman who had held an unknown number of hostages for more than 16 hours.
