Japan, Nagoya, Sept. 2003: Man demanding a paycheque (or something)
blows up a room with a hostage and himself inside.
There are video clips at the bottom.
The story: The bomber was armed with gasoline and a rambo-style knife. He was demanding his money for July, August and September - three days earlier than July's payment was due and months earlier than August or September's payment should have been paid. He initially released all the women and injured, leaving seven people inside. When the company paid up, and deposited money to his bank account, the bomber released all the hostages but one manager. Apparently then the cops went in to negotiate, and then the explosion happened.
