Hostage held in porno library

(First Edition)

VIENNA - An escaped convict was barricaded inside a pornographic video library with a hostage in a Vienna suburb demanding a ransom, a passport, a getaway car and a driving licence. The man was armed with a police pistol and had been holding the mother of his former girlfriend hostage. He had escaped from a prison in Graz, where he was serving a prison term for theft. He was arrested this week after he was caught shoplifting in Vienna. Reuter
