Sydney radio host Ray Hadley says he has received calls from the hostages while on air, begging him to let them speak to the public.

"I'm on the phone to police. I'm asking for advice on what to do. There are requests being made that I can't comply with."

Hadley said he was told there are some hostages who are not well and are distraught after being held for many hours. "I can hear the person in the background issuing instructions to the young man talking to me," Hadley said on air.

Police have asked local media outlets not to reveal the demands being made by the gunman through the hostages' calls. As the siege entered its tenth hour, most media were complying with the request.
