Nasty bus action in Manila this afternoon with an enraged police officer (who had been removed from his post) holding a load of hostages. Loads of dead Chinese tourists as a result, and a bungled attempt to break the siege.
The bus was held up on a road that was right under my brother's apartment building in the city. He is UK side for a while now but he has a pal in the same building who could see the whole thing from his window.
More than they bargained for on that bus trip :-(
