Malaysia Hostage Standoff Ends, Children Unharmed
Malaysian police have freed 30 pre-school children and their four teachers hours after they were taken hostage Thursday by a hammer and machete-wielding man in southern Jolor state.
Police fired tear gas and stormed the building after several hours of negotiations had failed. The standoff ended when a police sniper shot and wounded the suspect.
