    An armed man claiming to have a bomb walked into a Hillary Clinton campaign office in Rochester, New Hampshire, and reportedly is holding two hostages after having released woman with a child.
    A federal official told FOX News that the assailant said he wanted to speak with Sen. Clinton, and had been holding up to four hostages.
    Clinton is not in New Hampshire.
    This story is developing. Please refresh for updates.
    The hostages are campaign staffers, and sharpshooters have been positioned near the building, and negotiators are also being sent, WMUR.com reported. A bomb squad unit also is on the way, said Maj. Michael Handbrook of New Hampshire State Police, according to The Associated Press.
    Other nearby presidential campaign offices including those for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and John Edwards, have been evacuated, as well as other nearby businesses, according to news reports.
    WMUR.com reported: "A young woman with a 6-month or 8-month-old infant came rushing into [a nearby store] just in tears, and she said, 'You need to call 911. A man has just walked into the Clinton office, opened his coat and showed us a bomb strapped to his chest with duct tape,'" witness Lettie Tzizik said.
    A Clinton spokesman said no one has been hurt, but the campaign is still gathering information.
    Clinton has canceled her speech that was scheduled for Friday afternoon at the Democratic National Committee fall meeting later Friday in Northern Virginia, party chair Howard Dean announced Friday afternoon.

    Supposedly he's let all of the hostages go now. If you were going to pull off a stunt like this why wouldn't you take her hostage yourself?

    Apparently the guy had road flares strapped to his chest. And the people inside knew it.


    When I saw the headlines at first I was like "victory is ours!".
