Philippine envoys to tackle Hong Kong bus deaths anger

The Philippine government is to send a high-level delegation to Hong Kong amid increasing public anger there over the deaths of eight citizens in the hijacking of a tourist bus in Manila.

Officials in both Beijing and Hong Kong have expressed concern over how the situation was handled.

Government offices in Hong Kong are flying flags at half mast and all tours to the Philippines have been cancelled.
