A man with a bomb strapped to his chest who sparked a hostage crisis at former U.S. First Lady Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign headquarters in Rochester, New Hampshire has surrendered to police. A young mum, carrying her baby, raised the alarm on Friday lunchtime (30Nov07) after the crazed man, Leeland Eisenberg, allowed her to walk free from the scene. Police and hostage negotiators quickly arrived and the stores close to Clinton's campaign base were evacuated, along with the local headquarters of fellow presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and John Edwards. Eisenberg reportedly targeted Clinton's offices because he wanted to speak directly with the former First Lady. Clinton, who was campaigning in Washington, D.C., cancelled her Democratic National Committee event after hearing of the hostage situation. The potential bomber's son-in-law told reporters Eisenberg had been drinking before entering the Clinton campaign headquarters and he "wanted to be hospitalised". After releasing five hostages, Eisenberg, wearing a shirt and tie, stepped out of the campaign headquarters, unstrapped the bomb from his body and, with his arms raised, surrendered to the authorities. He was arrested and taken into custody. Hillary Clinton later made a statement about the incident. After paying tribute to her "brave" supporters involved in the hostage stand-off, she said, "This has been a very hard day for all of us in our campaign... I'm relieved to have this situation end so peacfully without anyone being injured."
