Philippine Hostage Crisis Ends with Ten Dead

Philippine security forces stormed a bus full of Hong Kong tourists on Monday to end a dramatic hostage crisis that unfolded live on global television, leaving at least ten people and the gunman dead.
Hong Kong eventually issued its top-level black travel alert for the Philippines on Monday after Hong Kong tourists were killed in Manila in a bus hijack by an armed ex-policeman.
The Hong Kong government said it was “very disappointed” about the outcome of a dramatic hostage siege
Well this is expected to happen when you let Philippine Police handle hostage crisis. They are incompetent and lacks equipment for this kind of situation.
Also in the Philippines, you don't really know  if there are real police. Because they are also the kidnappers, drug protectors/dealers and extortionist.
