Siege victims farewelled today

The victims of the Lindt cafe Sydney siege will be farewelled today.

Family and friends will pay their respects in individual memorial services across Sydney city.

Both victims were killed in one of the most horrific sieges this country has ever seen, with gunman Man Haron Monis taking 17 people hostage in the Lindt Cafe in Sydney’s Martin Place last Tuesday.


Tori Johnson, 34, will be farewelled at 11:00am at a private funeral at St Stephen’s Uniting Church in Macquarie Street.

Katrina Dawson, 38, will be farewelled at 3:00pm at a memorial at the Sydney University Great Hall.

A cleanup of the large memorial full of flowers and tributes has begun in Sydney’s Martin Place today ahead of wet weather warnings.

A permanent memorial location is yet to be announced.
