A disgruntled former security guard was tackled and detained by police outside the V-mall in the Greenhills shopping complex in Manila on Monday, after he agreed to release the hostages he took hours earlier, bringing the dramatic stand-off to an end.
Footage shows the hostages slowly being led out of the mall, before the hostage taker was given a microphone and spoke to the crowd, which was... Еще reportedly one of the conditions for the hostages' release. Shortly afterwards, a police officer ran up behind the man and grabbed him, before several police officers swarmed and detained the man.
The hostage taker had reportedly been sacked from his position at the V-Mall some days earlier, and one of his demands was to have several of his former employers apologise to him and stand down from their positions, which they did, reports say.
Before the hostages were taken, at least one other person was shot and injured.
