Hong Kong mourns Manila hijack victims

A three-minute silence has been observed across Hong Kong for the eight tourists killed in a bus hijack in the Philippines on Monday.

A sombre service was held on Hong Kong's waterfront to remember the dead and flags flew at half-mast.

Many in Hong Kong are angry about how the incident was handled, and several Philippine police officers have been removed from duty over the handling of the siege.
