The alleged perpetrator was filmed and inconsistent screaming when he was quickly taken away by the security.
& # 39; Wow. Thank you to our security staff for handling it. Thank you, & # 39; said Sales.
She continued her speech.
& # 39; I'm fine. I am happy to continue. If everyone is fine, I am happy to continue, & she said while the audience applauded.
She spoke about her 25-year journalistic journey and her most memorable stories – from cyclones and political upheavals to sporting scandals and crime.
Sales said after the siege in December 2014 in Lindt, where a shooter held 10 customers and eight employees hostage for 16 hours, she would stay awake at night thinking about the people who lost their lives.
& # 39; I found it hard to think that the questions that this tragedy raises, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Why she, why not me … it must be my turn at some point … when it is my turn when it happens to me. & # 39;
The alleged yogurt poter has been accused of a common attack on the incident.
He will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court on 27 August.
