    Hostage Drama Shakes the Philippines

    August 23, a dreadful day overtakes Manila, Philippines, as a recently dismissed Senior Inspecor Rolanda Mendoza took over a tourist bus containing at least twenty-five Chinese nationals and three Filipinos at about 9 A.M.. The bus was then situated in front of the Quirino Grandstand, where the recently elected President Noynoy Aquino underwent his inauguration last July. The ordeal lasted less than ten hours, ending with two tourists dead on the scene, and Mendoza killed by a sniper.
