No apology by Manila in hostage fiasco deal
(04-23 16:53)

The Hong Kong and Philippine governments have issued a joint statement, announcing a resolution to the fallout from the Manila hostage crisis.
In the brief statement, the Philippine Government expresses its "most sorrowful regret and profound sympathy" to the victims and their families, but there's no mention of an official apology for the botched rescue attempt, which resulted in the death of eight Hong Kong people.
The Philippine government also promised to make payments to those affected, but the statement did not say how much. --RTHK
