The gunman, trapped inside the bank, has sent out everyone apart from two women and three children, who he has kept as hostages.
Due to his preposterous demands negotiations are not going well, so his startled wife, a frightened little woman, is almost dragged from her home.
She is ushered into the mobile control centre where, as she fidgets and paces nervously, the situation is explained to her.
When she asks why they don’t just let him go so no one will get hurt, they shake their heads, trying not to laugh, and tell her that is impossible.
She takes her hand out of her coat pocket and shows them the hand-grenade, with the pin pulled, so that if she releases the trigger in this confined space eleven people will die.
Impossible, she says, are you sure?
