On the evening of 18 November 1997, South African military attache McGill Alexander and his family were taken hostage by fugitive Chen Chin-hsing in their home in Taipei, Taiwan. Chen was involved in the murder of Pai Hsiao-yen, daughter of actress Pai Bing-bing, and responsible for a string of killings and abductions during the same year. For Taiwan and its rapacious media, this hostage crisis became one of Taiwan's biggest news stories ever. [SOURCE]
