Passenger surrenders after US bus bomb scare

PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire — A passenger on a Maine-to-New York Greyhound bus surrendered to authorities Thursday night after a nine-hour standoff sparked by a bomb scare.
The man walked off the bus with his hands up and got to his knees. He then walked away from the bus, apparently following orders from police.
The 16 other passengers and driver on the bus, which was surrounded by a bomb squad and sharpshooters, including one in an armored vehicle, had been removed hours earlier.
