Police officers outside an H&M fashion store in central Leipzig, Germany, secure pedestrians on Tuesday, June 15, 2010, as an armed man inside holds several hostages, who were released without injury several hours later. Police spokeswoman Uta Barthel told the Associated Press that a 41-year-old man was in custody and that authorities believe psychological problems led to the hostage-taking. She declined to say how many hostages were taken, but said all were being cared for by medical professionals. (AP Photo/ddp/Sebastian Willnow)
