The interior of the bank looks like New Orleans on Fat
Tuesday. Three Hummers sit in the middle of the floor,

with the door in it, has been welded over with 3/4 inchplate steel.
Over two dozen hostages lie face down on the floor, armscable-tied behind their backs. Something has been duct-
taped around their chests and each is wearing whatappears to be a dog collar.
The other occupants of the room are nine men. All of
whom would look as if they were attending the fashionevent of the year were it not for the automatic weaponseach one carries.
