Alabama hostage crisis: Boy's fifth day in bunker


Efforts to free a five-year-old boy taken hostage in the US state of Alabama are continuing.

Jimmy Lee Dykes, 65, is accused of holding the youngster in a bunker under his home in Midland City, after allegedly shooting dead the driver of the boy's school bus.

The suspect, a retired lorry driver, is not believed to be related to the five-year-old.
