Manila police may be demoted for web photos of hijacked bus

Philippine police may punish police officers for publishing photos on the social networking site Facebook from last week's deadly hijacking of a bus full of Hong Kong tourists in Manila, AFP reported on Monday.

Eight hostages and the hijacker, a former police officer, were killed during a standoff when police surrounded the commandeered bus.
