Police seek more evidence on hostage tragedy
Three police officers left for Manila yesterday to collect more evidence on the hostage tragedy in which eight Hong Kong people were shot dead. The officers - from the forensic firearms examination and organised crime and triad bureaus - want more information on ballistics tests from Philippine authorities, a senior officer said. The Hong Kong police on October 6 submitted to the coroner a progress report on their investigation into the tragedy. A full report will eventually be filed with the coroner.
