    He is on a bus with darkly tinted windows and it is currently 8;30 in the evening... hard to get a clear shot... The police are trying to board the bus, but were met with gunfire...

    Re: Gunshots heard from hostage bus in Philippines

    It appears now that four of the 15 who were still on the bus have now exited the bus alive... no word on the other 11 at this point...

    CNN International and Sky News and BBC cut away and started to send delayed because of the body. Al Jazerra in English did not.

    Re: Gunshots heard from hostage bus in Philippines

    CNN and local Philippine media are reporting that the hostage-taker is dead...

    Bodies have been seen, but can't confirm how many or who they are...

    Looks like it's over, the hostage taker is said to have been killed.
