An armed man who took two employees of a women's center hostage in eastern France surrendered to police after a 3 1/2 hour standoff Tuesday, officials said. No one was injured.
The 21-year-old man stormed the women's center in the city of Mulhouse, armed with a gun, in the late morning demanding to speak to his former companion, who was living there, officials said. When center officials denied his demand, the man took two employees hostage. A special police intervention team was called in from the nearby city of Strasbourg. (AP)
