Muslim Bride Lays Down Wedding Bouquet in Tribute to Sydney Siege Victims.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A Muslim bride received applause as she interrupted her wedding day to lay her bouquet in tribute to the victims of the Sydney siege at Martin Place.

Manal Kassem, 23, from Punchbowl, a Sydney suburb, had originally planned to have her wedding photoshoot in the city, but had been hesitant after the events last week, The Independent reported.

Dressed in white, wearing a headscarf and a veil, Kassem chose to visit the site before the pictures were taken for her wedding, and received applause from the crowds as she laid down her bouquet.

Barrister and mother-of-three Katrina Dawson, 38, and cafe manager Tory Johnson, 34, were both killed in the siege in which lone gunman and self-styled Takfiri cleric Haron Monis held people hostage in a Lindt cafe for 16 hours. He was killed when police stormed the area to end the stand-off.
