Gewapende mannen bestormen live uitzending tv Ecuador

Gewapende en gemaskerde mannen hebben een live-uitzending van een televisieprogramma in Ecuador onderbroken. Dat gebeurde in de stad Guayaquil. Meerdere journalisten en werknemers van tv-station TC werden gegijzeld. De actie is inmiddels door de politie beëindigd.

Speciale eenheden waren snel ter plaatse, meldt de lokale politie. De aanval was live op televisie te zien. Vlak voor de live-uitzending werd onderbroken, moesten de medewerkers op de vloer gaan liggen.

Op de tv-beelden zijn onder meer geweren en granaten te zien:

Op andere beelden is te zien dat mensen wegrennen van het gebouw van het televisiestation. De politie van Ecuador liet weten op X, voorheen Twitter, dat medewerkers van het televisiestation werden geëvacueerd.

Ontvoering

De aanval volgde op de ontvoeringen van zeven agenten op verschillende plaatsen in Ecuador. Ook zijn er meerdere explosies in de hoofdstad Quito en Guayaquil geweest.
