A teenage girl is at the centre of an unfolding drama in one of Sydney’s wealthiest suburbs after she was found by police in her home with a bomb strapped around her neck.

Reports suggested the 18 year old girl has been at the property in Mosman, on Sydney’s leafy North Shore, when an intruder broke in and fitted her with the device against her will at about 2.40pm. Once the intruder left the property she rang police for help.
Police have refused to confirm reports that she was also left with a ransom note.
However, she is understood to be the daughter of a wealthy Sydney businessman and Australian media have suggested that the extraordinary incident might be part of an extortion attempt.
Police, bomb squads and negotiators were on the scene, attempting to determine if the bomb was live or could be controlled remotely.
Assistant police commissioner Mark Murdoch told the assembled media that police were trying to “work out what it is and more importantly what it isn’t.”
More than 7 hours after police arrived at the house, Mr Murdoch said the woman was “doing pretty well” and remained calm.
