Just recently, I talked about the hostage taking in Quirino Grandstand hit Twitter. I was personally surprised that just few hours ago, 6 out of the 10 trending topics on Twitter are related to the Philippines.
Some are not even aware of the incident, but because of the social media – it created buzzes all over the web particularly on Twitter, Facebook, and Plurk.
Some online friends ask for the video to watch, and luckily I found this high-definition video showing Philippine SWAT team storming the bus with hostages. The hostage taker Rolando Mendoza, a former Philippine policeman, was killed during the assault ending the 11-hour standoff. Watch this!
