LONDON 0A'-Three gunmen
under siege in the basement
storeroom of a London restau-
rant for five days released their'
six Italian hostages unharmed
early today, Scotland' Yard 'an-
The three gunmen surrender-
ed. Their leader, a 28-yer-od
N ig er i an ex-convict named'
Franklyn Davis, shot himself in
the' stonpah after he let the
hostages go, a police sokes-{
man said.
HIS CONDITION was not im-
mediately determined, police re-
The other two gunmen were
young Jamacians known oly
as Bonzo and Wesley.
They invaded the Sp ighetti
Hoau se in the fashmable
Knightsbridge district early last
Sunday morning in a robbery1
attempt, but one of the nne
Italian restauranteurs in the
place at the time escaped -,nd
called the ,police.
A few hours before th siege
ended, Sotland Yard anymced
that an Italian and a German
had been arrested and chrged
with conspiring with l)avis in
the atten'nted robbery.
"Events are following the
(9%"ssic tradition of a criminal
kids-auing. Tha, cantors and
their vctrni5 heap' now beeny
tnqether sffiintlv lone, nnir'i
for them to havye othlisl, aia
dfree of rannort" London's
Ttolkaeni-mmmn~zinner Sir lRobert
Mark, told renorters.
LONDON evening newspap-
ers said gunmen and hostages
were playing cards together.i
Scotland Yard refused to con-
firm the reports, but did say
cards were passed in to the
basement storeroom.
Hostage Giovanni Scarno
had shouted to Italian Consul-1
General Mario Manca that
"things are getting very bor-
ing in here." Manca, who has
been :visiting the siege scene
regularly to talk to the cap-
tives, provided the cards.
Police commander Christoph-
er Payne, who had been nego-
tiating with the gunmen by the
exchange of shouts through a'
brick wall, said:;
"THlEY ALL seem in a re-E
faxed and calm mood ... At
the "noment we are content
with the present situation as
long as we are satisfied 'that'
the hostages are safe. We will
not give in to the gunmen's de-
mands. What we are after is a
surrender with no violence."
They herded the hostages into
the 12-by 14-foot storeroom af-
ter police surprised them in aj
robbery attempt at the_ Spa-
ghetti House restaurant in fash-
ionable Knightsbridge at 2 a.m.
last Sunday. Originally there
were eight hostages, but the
gunmen freed two who wereI
taken ill.
The relationship between thei
gunmen and hostages ws simi-
lar to that which develoed be-
tween Swedish hostages and
their bank robber cantors in
Stockholm in August 173.
IN THAT case the robbers
held three women and a man
in a cramped bank vault for
six days. Two of the eirs de-
yloped close svrnatv for
their cantors and on leaving the
tear ga-drenched vaut nro-
tected the men and calld to

police, "Don't hulrt th'em,"
Doctors exnlairied their atti-
th1de as a natural f'pelingr of nin-
itv with the closest humans in a
tight and Pressing situatin
