Manila to Apologize and Negotiate Compensation for HK Hstages Crisis

The Manila City Council has passed a resolution, requesting the city government to apologize for the Philippines' hostage crisis of 2010 that resulted in the deaths of eight people from Hong Kong.

A representative of the Manila government has arrived in Hong Kong on October 23. He is expected to stay in Hong Kong for seven days to meet victims' family members and negotiate a compensation plan. Philippine media also say the Mayor of Manila may go to Hong Kong himself.

In August 2010, a former police officer seized a bus full of tourists from Hong Kong. The police mounted an assault, killing the hostage-taker, but eight of the hostages also died.

Official inquiries in Hong Kong and the Philippines said the deaths were the result of bad police handling of the incident.
