    ENNEPETAL, Germany - A man armed with a knife forced at least four children off a bus in northwest Germany on Tuesday and held them hostage in a nearby house, police said.

    The man forced between four and seven children aged 10 and 11 from a public bus at about 1 p.m., police spokeswoman Sandra Zwick said.

    If anyone has an update, please LMK.

    (It is currently 9:44 eastern here, 3:44 there I do believe.)

    with love and prayers,

    Ariel
