Watch: Five Sydney Hostages Escape

Watch: Five Sydney Hostages Escape

Video shows some of the hostages being held in Sydney during an on-going hostage crisis escaping and running towards police.

New South Wales Deputy Police Commissioner Catherine Burn told the Associated Press that they would ensure the escaped hostages were okay and then try to gather whatever information they could. She added that negotiators for the police “have had contact and they continue to have contact” with those involved in the situation, although she said resolving things “might take a bit of time” and that they were hoping for a “peaceful resolution.”

Although Burn said she could only confirm three people had escaped, Fox News reports that five hostages have escaped.
