The hostage situation that has been going on since yesterday afternoon in Germany, specifically in the Aachen hospital, has ended.

In particular, the incident occurred on Monday afternoon (4/3) when a 65-year-old woman broke into the hospital and a little later workers noticed smoke and found that the woman had lit flares in the operating room, causing alarm to the German authorities.

Around 23.00 at night, special forces managed to locate and arrest the 65-year-old woman who had barricaded herself in the hospital and was reportedly holding 15 people hostage.
