9 Killed On Hijacked Tourist Bus In Manila

24 08 2010

On August 23, 2010, a man hijacked a tourist bus in Manila.

The tourist are from Hong Kong.

He was a policeman but he was sacked.

He hijacked the bus because he want to be a policeman again.

At first he let go nine hostages.

Then he got angry and started shooting.

The police tried to save the hostages.

He was killed by the police.

I wonder why people need to hijack and killed hostages when they are angry.

  

It is not a good way to get what you want.

Hijacking is a disaster; just like a war.

We should not use violence because violence can destroy our Earth.
