Mass-murder suspect held

A man sought in a killing spree in Taiwan surrendered to police after releasing the last of five South African family members he had held hostage. Chen Chin-hsing released Anne Alexander, the wife of the South African defence attache, and was whisked away in a police motorcade.

The police had hunted Mr Chen for six months for his alleged role in the kidnapping and murder of a television star's teenage daughter and the murder of a plastic surgeon and two nurses.
