The hostage taking involving a filipino cop and chinese nationals from hongkong is a big topic now in the international world. Hongkong officials are dismayed over the handling of the hostage crisis that ended up with eight fatalities from the tourists. Looking at the hostage taking last night, I can also say that there was a mishandling that happened, indeed. The tourism industry is badly affected now as Philippines is blacklisted from the roll of countries to be visited by the Hongkong tourists. I understand the position of Hongkong on this matter. It is even good that the diplomatic relations was not severed by their country officials.

Yes, the hostage crisis was mishandled poorly by the police. Let us just hope that the fallout from this sad event will eventually die down and we can go back to our daily lives. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
