Gunmen who held more than 30 hostages inside a Venezuelan bank for over 24 hours negotiated their getaway in an ambulance Tuesday but were later stopped on a highway, where they surrendered. Five remaining hostages were freed as the four gunmen laid down their weapons and were arrested, Guarico state Gov. Eduardo Manuitt said. "This nightmare is over," Manuitt told state television.
