SYDNEY (AFP): The Sydney cafe at the centre of a deadly siege has been vandalised with police investigating on Wednesday after rocks were thrown through five of its windows.

Witnesses told police they saw a man loitering near the upmarket Lindt cafe in the city's financial heart at the time of the attack in the early hours.

"We believe a man in his 40s with facial hair and tanned skin may be able to assist with inquiries," a New South Wales police spokeswoman said.

They added that it was too early to say whether it was a targeted or random attack, which coincided with an inquest into the siege underway nearby.
