    MOSMAN, AUSTRALIA - AUGUST 03: Police wait outside at the scene of Mosman home where an 18-year old girl is believed to have had a bomb strapped to her earlier today, on August 3, 2011 in Mosman, Australia. It is believed a balaclava-wearing man unknown to her entered the house and affixed what is reported to be an explosive device around the girl's neck complete with a ransom note.

An intruder reportedly broke into the 18-year-old's home in an affluent suburb and fitted her with the package. There are also reports that he left a ransom note for her father, a wealthy businessman.
