Philippine security forces have killed a former police officer after he took 15 Hong Kong tourists hostage on a bus in Manila, the capital, on Monday. Rolando Mendoza, who was armed with an M16 rifle when he hijacked the vehicle, had been dismissed from the police force in 2008 over corruption allegations and was demanding to be reinstated. At least seven hostages died during the 11-hour crisis. Al Jazeera Nicole Johnston reports.
