Sydney siege gunman was not seen at mosques, imam tells inquest
None of the Muslim clerics consulted by a senior Australian imam ever saw Man Haron Monis at their mosques, an inquest has heard.
Associate professor Mohamad Abdalla also said on Monday the Sydney siege gunman's claims to be a senior Islamic scholar – including that he had attained the rank of ayatollah – were "quite difficult" to believe.
The deaths of Monis and hostages Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson are the subject of a coroner's inquest in Sydney.
