A week after two hostages were killed in a Sydney café, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott warned that it was likely his country would face another terrorist attack. In the wake of the siege, there is a “heightened level of terror chatter,” Abbott said. He has resisted officially raising the country’s terror-warning level, but encouraged citizens to be “alert and aware.” Since the attack, it has been revealed that Australia’s national-security hotline received an anonymous call regarding gunman Man Haron Monis’ extremist behavior. New South Wales Labor leader John Robertson also resigned after it was discovered he signed off on a letter of request for Monis during a dispute with his then-wife in 2011.
