Under siege

When I opened BBC News 24 this morning, something familiar on the screen caught my attention. Not the soldiers and some Asian-looking civilians behind them but the building.

I then realised that it was the first floor balcony of the Manila Peninsula in Makati where we stayed for a few days in route to England a few years ago. So what's going on?
And was it really necessary to ram a tank inside the hotel lobby? More here.
