Shire Ali was shot in the chest by a police officer he had threatened with a knife and died in hospital.

"The idea that community leaders would have information but withhold it from police or intelligence agencies is unacceptable and we're best to be honest about the problem that we've got so that we can address it".

"As I say, the police and ASIO have been clear about this for a long time - you have a soft target, that is where you have a place of mass gathering, a mall, or a food court or somewhere else, you have somebody, as we've seen overseas with a vehicle, with a knife, an explosive device otherwise, it is very hard to deal with every one of those situations".

Mr Dutton said while police saw "no evidence" that Shire Ali was preparing to attack, more information had since been gleaned about the man's state of mind through the execution of a search warrant on Saturday.

"There was no evidence available to the police. that any attack was imminent or that he had been part of planning", he was quoted as saying by the report.

'In relation to his connections with ISIL or with any terrorist group. there's not, as I'm advised a membership of an organisation or a definite link to ISIL'.

"Where there is not (that information), where someone makes a spur-of-the-moment decision - under the influence of drugs or alcohol - the police can't contemplate every circumstance", Mr Dutton said. The auto burst into flames.

Gaza officials say six Palestinians killed in Israeli raid
The Palestinian Health Ministry said six people, including at least five militants, were killed and seven others wounded. Multiple alarm sirens have sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel near the Gaza border.

Federal and state governments and agencies are now expected to consider bolstering early intervention and deradicalisation programs in the wake of the attack, in which city restaurant legend Sisto Malaspina was killed.

There is no reason why the failures around Man Haron Monis, Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, and the Khayat brothers won't continue to happen. Footage shows the security guard was stabbed in the neck. The cylinders were declared useless shortly after. He lunged at them repeatedly with a knife. "I threw the trolley straight at him, and I got him".

A Somali-origin man, who set a auto on fire and stabbed three people, killing one of them, before being fatally shot in the Australian city of Melbourne, did not have a "definite link" to the dreaded Islamic State but was "inspired" by it, the government said on Sunday.

"I am the first to protect religious freedom in this country, but it also means I must be the first to call out religious extremism", he said.

Police will also use CCTV cameras around the city to map Shire Ali's journey into the CBD and see if he had been scoping out the area.

- His identity was revealed, and further affiliations to terror were revealed.
