Joe Biden declares synagogue hostage stand-off an 'act of terror'


US President Joe Biden has called the 10-hour hostage stand-off in a Texas synagogue, which ended with an FBI Swat team rushing into the building, "an act of terror". His comments come as two teenagers have been arrested in Manchester after a British man flew to the US, bought a weapon and held people hostage in a 10-hour stand-off at a synagogue.
