The three men were abducted June 18 in North Darfur. They spent the next 32 days as captives.

They may look cute and cuddly, but you can’t trust ‘em.
Terrifying and tragic. The man with the hatchet is dying of kidney disease but can’t afford the treatment to save his life. He held this man hostage in a desperate bid to get money for the procedure. Fortunately the standoff was resolved peacefully.
According to both Gothamist and the New York Daily News there is currently some sort of hostage situation in or around the Flatiron Building. Most reports tend to agree that a man is holding his wife hostage at gun point. UPDATE: The most recent reports have the man located in the apartment building next to the Flatiron. The police have currently blocked off a four block area and it is recommended that you avoid the area. UPDATE 2: Police have the suspect in custody. There were no injuries or shots were fired. The suspect was led away wearing daisy dukes (I really hope we’ll have pictures soon).
