Man takes hostages in NH Clinton office

ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton says her campaign is in close contact with New Hampshire authorities and "are acting at their direction." This after police and witnesses say a man claiming to have a bomb walked into Clinton's campaign office in Rochester, initially taking at least four hostages. At least three were released. Clinton was not in the state at the time. State police say the man ordered people onto the floor and then let a mother and her baby leave. It's not clear if the man has made any demands. The situation caused Senator Clinton to back out of an address at the Democratic National Committee meeting in Vienna, Virginia. The small Clinton office is located in a downtown area in a strip of several storefronts. Workers for Senator Barack Obama's campaign office in Rochester also evacuated, as did staffers in John Edwards' office. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
