---Series of Reports of Philippines Hostage Crisis
Due to the seriousness of Philippines Hostage Crisis, both authorities have devoted great efforts in investigating the issue, hoping to find out the fundamental reasons in leading to such miserable results. And the Philippines authority has promised to hand in their investigation results within three weeks. In addition, Hong Kong authority has also sent the experts and policemen for further investigation. However, another pitiful event occurred. Al Jazeera Magazine issued the online news ‘Bullet Shells’, purposing to portray the lazy attitudes of Philippines in dealing with the crisis.
The report makes use of the sharp words and languages to express the dissatisfaction to the Philippines police in dealing with the concerned issues to the Crisis. In the first sentence,
‘Philippines police briefly detained two members of a Hong Kong forensics team on Thursday at the Manila airport after several bullet shells connected to the hostage investigation were found in their possession.’
It employs the word ‘briefly’ to express the strong dissatisfaction of Hong Kong officials and the sentence also describes that the bullet shells connected to the investigation is the simple reason for the detain. The official uses these words to question the Philippines police--- you do not want Hong Kong authorities to be involved in the investigation or you want to stop them to take the evidence that will prove your errors.
The following paragraphs further prove the guess of the Hong Kong Authority, as Jose Salazar, a DOJ official, said ‘Before they bring out any kind of item related to the investigation, they will coordinate with us.’ The word ‘coordinate’ clearly presents their attitudes on the investigation---any of the evidence taken should be permitted by Philippines authority, or else the experts or the concerned one from Hong Kong will suffer the unexpected troubles.
As the online news, it is successfully presenting the shabby attitudes of Philippines authority on dealing with the crisis in front of the audiences and thus, forcing Philippines to pay enough and serious attention on dealing with it. .
