A hostage standoff in a town in the United States has entered its eighth day.

The suspect, Jimmy Lee Dykes, shot a school bus driver dead in Midland City in Alabama before taking a five-year-old passenger hostage and holding him in an underground bunker.

He is thought to have a television so reporting of negotiations is restricted.
