    Hope the woman is okay.
    A female correctional officer is no longer being held hostage at the jail in Sept-Îles, Que., sources tell Radio-Canada, but police will not comment on her condition.

    On Wednesday afternoon, inmates at the jail took the woman hostage. Quebec's provincial police were called to the facility around 3 p.m. ET. At that time, the building was evacuated and a security perimeter was set up.
    Police are also not commenting on the motive of the inmates.
    Code red

    A criminologist who was inside the courthouse during the evacuation said he's never seen anything like this in 30 years.

    Michel Savard said he was asked to leave the building due to a "code red."

    Thank goodness, this could have been very, very ugly, imo.

    Police say two convicts took a female correctional officer hostage in Sept-Iles before eventually surrendering.

    She was not hurt, said police spokesman Helene Nepton.

    Two men aged 22 and 26 are expected to appear in court Thursday.
