Two hostages freed from bus in Brazil

A hostage drama captured on live television. Brazilian police negotiate with a man who'd taken two hostages from aboard this bus in Rio de Janeiro. The man had reportedly attempted to rob passengers before he was intercepted by police. All but the driver and one female fled the bus, when it stopped, blocking one of the city's main avenues. It was a tense standoff. Police say he used a pair of scissors to keep his hostages close. But after about four and a half hours they were released unharmed and the man turned himself over to the authorities.
