VIDEO: 13 Masked cartel thugs who took hostages on a live television broadcast at TC Television in Ecuador have been arrested and will reportedly be charged with terrorism

13 thugs who took hostages on a live television broadcast in Ecuador have been arrested and will reportedly be charged with terrorism. 

Here are the 13 clowns celebrating and flashing their gang signs for the cameras just moments before being arrested.

Toting pistols, shotguns, machine guns, grenades and sticks of dynamite, a number of men overran the studio during the El Noticiero news programme. With the cameras broadcasting live, the men could be seen on camera while some employees lay down on the floor and someone was heard yelling “Don’t shoot!” before the signal was eventually cut.

The newspaper El Universo said panicked reporters and camera operators flooded messaging groups with pleas for help as the outlaws rampaged through the building. “They want to kill the lot of us. Help us,” one message read.

Alina Manrique, the head of news for TC Television, said she was in the control room, across from the studio, when the group of masked men entered the building. One of the men pointed a gun at her head and told her to get on the floor, she told the Associated Press.

Police commander César Zapata later told the TV channel Teleamazonas that officers seized the guns and explosives the gunmen had with them and that 13 people were arrested, saying “This is an act that should be considered as a terrorist act.”

The shocking scenes on live television came as criminal groups launched a wave of terror across Ecuador, amid fresh outbreaks of violence in the country’s prisons.
