Police storm hijacked tourist bus

Philippine police have tried to stormed a bus where a gunman was holding Hong Kong tourists hostage, but they could not immediately get inside.

The crisis was being broadcast live on national television.Multiple gunshots were heard moments before the heavily-armed police approached the bus, parked in Manila's historic tourist district.

 

Ten minutes after the police approached the bus, they still could not get inside. There were no clear signs of movement from within the bus.

 

Fifteen tourists from Hong Kong were believed to be on the bus when police stormed it.

 

An ex-policeman armed with an M-16 assault rifle took the people on board the bus hostage on Monday in a desperate bid to get his job back.

 

The Filipino driver of the bus jumped out of a window and escaped just before police approached, with the scenes aired live on television.

I bet the Koreans will not be so crazy about visiting the Philippines now.

It's NOT their fault. All countries must send the Philippines a few hundred million dollars to upgrade their equipment and training.   <sarcasm>

Is this still a misunderstanding? When does something go from a misunderstanding to a crime in 'filipino mentality'?

Yeah looks like Mendoza out the door but they still don't have anyone inside to see if anyone else is alive. Amazing.
