All children released unharmed as bus hijacker surrenders in Philippines

The man who hijacked a bus of students and their teachers from his own day-care center freed all the hostages. The hijacker used the standoff to condemn corruption in the Philippines. He particularly demanded better living conditions and free education for the impoverished children.

The children started disembarking from the bus holding their dolls and backpacks. The man kept his promise to release the hostages when local officials allowed him to deliver a long message on a loudspeaker.

Jun Ducat, a 56-year-old civil engineer who has staged other attention-grabbing stunts in the past, then put the pin back in a grenade, handed it to a provincial governor and surrendered.
