A fired policeman hijacked a tourist bus in Manila, killing at least seven hostages by the time the 10-hour siege ended on Monday night.

Police later surrounded the vehicle, and a bloody gun battle ensued on the streets of the Philippine capital.

The siege ended when former Senior Inspector Reynaldo del Rosario Mendoza was shot dead.
