This is how pathetic things are here.
The MNLF came by boat to Zambo on Monday Morning killing and taking hostages. Their only way out will be by boat, die or surrender.
24 hours later re-enforcements of MNLF solders arrived by boat and took an additional 20 hostages.

Wouldn't the first thing you do is to cut off an escape root which is from the sea. The navy have a base in Zambo.. But now reinforcements have arrived. Unbelievable..
10 Years ago this same MNLF commander raided Zambo City and killed and took hostages. After negotiations the MNLF were allowed to leave in return for releasing the hostages. No retribution for killing people.
10 years on they are back. What is the bet they will be allowed to leave and no retribution for the deaths...
This reminds me so much of the fiasco with the Hong Kong bus hostage situation in Manila 3 years ago...cheers
