The killing of eight Hong Kong tourists taken hostage on a Manila bus has generated a huge outpouring of grief, frustration and anger in the Chinese territory.

A protester holds a placard reading “(We) strongly condemn the rescue action and appalling plan” at the Philippine Consulate in Hong Kong.

government flags were flown at half-mast in a sign of mourning, and activity on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange ceased as traders observed a minute of silence.

Several government websites were shaded in black and white, as was the Google logo on the company’s Hong Kong-based search engine.

Frustration and outrage over how Philippine police personnel handled the crisis was widespread.

“Sluggish Response of Philippines Police Cost Lives; China, Hong Kong Seeking Answers” read a headline in Apple Daily, one of Hong Kong’s biggest papers by circulation, which devoted eight pages to the tragedy.

On Twitter, one person referred to the Filipino SWAT team as “Sorry We Aren’t Trained.”

the Facebook page “R.I.P. Hong Kong Victims of Manila Bus Massacre 23/8/10″ had attracted nearly 6,500 followers.

“The gunman may have been an ex-policeman who knew police tactics but come on doesn’t take 7 dead and 12 hours to end it,” a poster named Jordan Wong wrote on the site.

The Monday killings took place after a dismissed policeman named Rolando Mendoza boarded a tour bus in the center of Manila.

Mr. Mendoza, who was wearing camouflage and armed with an M-16 assault rifle, then took all 25 people on the bus hostage, including 21 tourists from Hong Kong, a Filipino driver and three Filipino individuals escorting the tourists.

A standoff with local police that lasted roughly 12 hours ended when a SWAT team stormed the bus and killed Mr. Mendoza, but only after shooting dead eight tourists.

A newly issued Hong Kong government “black travel alert” for the Philippines warned that “residents should avoid all travel to the country.”

Tour groups were reported canceling previously arranged visits to the island nation, while Beijing also issued a travel warning to Chinese citizens, urging caution.

The Philippines-based GMA-7 news channel reported that its consulate in Hong Kong was “swamped with protests” over the crisis. Hong Kong sends about 120,000 tourists to the Philippines annually

Protests are useless. Simply stop sending tourists to Philippines.

Yeah, don't go to that shitty country, even Western countries including US has got travel alert on Philippines. Both new Zealand and Australia also has travel warning to Philippines. Basically if you are white or oriental looking, avoid Philippines, it has become a rogue state.

Philippine cops are notoriously incompetent and corrupt. Its really a systemic problem. They are underpaid, unequipped and under trained. This is not a problem if you have money and the connects. With a bit of both, you could literally get away with murder - which is ridiculously cheap by the way. In spite of this (or maybe because of this) the Philippines is awesome and worth visiting for its spas, bands, clubs and Filipina prostitutes.

More chinese dead, more countries refuse to invest in china, more countries restrict chinese imports, More countries kill more chinese tourist.
