 The hostage taker has been identified in the local media as Jac Souza dos Santos, 30, a former councilman and member of Brazil's Partido Progressista in the town of Combinado in the state of in Tocantins

Two of the kidnapper's demands - his first is the extradition of Cesare Battisti, an Italian left wing terrorist convicted of murders from Brazil to Italy and the implementation of Brazil's 'clean record' law, a piece of the legislation already in place that aims to bar corrupt candidates from office

The man has told negotiators they had until 6pm local time to meet his demands or he would set off the explosives.

Lucy Jordan, a freelance journalist who was on the scene in Brasilia reported two of the kidnapper's demands - his first was the extradition of Cesare Battisti, an Italian left wing terrorist convicted of murders from Brazil to Italy.

He was also demanding the implementation of Brazil's 'clean record' law, a piece of the legislation already in place that aims to bar corrupt candidates from office - it known as Ficha Limpa.

The hostage taker at one point threw an object from the balcony. According to local media, the man checked into the hotel in the morning and then proceeded to bang on doors and yell for guests to evacuate the hotel

Police haven't identified the man and didn't confirm whether there were actually explosives in the garment

Another reported demand was a promise that Dilma Vana Rousseff, current president of Brazil, will not be reelected.

Local news reported that he had left behind three 'farewell' letters at his home. 

This morning firefighters and police cordoned off the area and about 300 guests and other employees left the hotel - some were reportedly told to leave by the same man carrying out the attack.

The hostage taker at one point threw an object from the balcony.  
Police didn't confirm whether there were actually explosives in the garment. 

'It has not been confirmed if the explosives are real -- we have taken all security measures,' a police spokesman said. 
The spokesman said the hostage taker had made a number of demands, including some of a political nature. 

Special Forces are also on the scene assessing the situation. 

The chairman of the Progressive Party (PP) of Combinado, Lindon Jonson Miguel da Silva, confirmed from pictures that the kidnapper is Souza dos Santo, the former Secretary of Agriculture and Livestock of the municipality, reports Fox News Latino.

'It was a big surprise for everyone.'
'He is a very good guy...We are praying for the family,' Jonson said, according to O Globo.
'No question it is psychological.' 

Eventually the hostage was freed and there no injuries or explosions.
The kidnapper was arrested and removed from the hotel by waiting police.

A man calling himself a 'terrorist' holds an employee of the hotel where he is staying hostage, forcing him to wear handcuffs and a vest which appears to be strapped with an explosive device, according to authorities

 The hostage taker has been identified in the local media as Jac Souza dos Santos, 30, a former councilman and member of Brazil's Partido Progressista in the town of Combinado in the state of in Tocantins

Two of the kidnapper's demands - his first is the extradition of Cesare Battisti, an Italian left wing terrorist convicted of murders from Brazil to Italy and the implementation of Brazil's 'clean record' law, a piece of the legislation already in place that aims to bar corrupt candidates from office

The man has told negotiators they had until 6pm local time to meet his demands or he would set off the explosives.

Lucy Jordan, a freelance journalist who was on the scene in Brasilia reported two of the kidnapper's demands - his first was the extradition of Cesare Battisti, an Italian left wing terrorist convicted of murders from Brazil to Italy.

He was also demanding the implementation of Brazil's 'clean record' law, a piece of the legislation already in place that aims to bar corrupt candidates from office - it known as Ficha Limpa.

The hostage taker at one point threw an object from the balcony. According to local media, the man checked into the hotel in the morning and then proceeded to bang on doors and yell for guests to evacuate the hotel

Police haven't identified the man and didn't confirm whether there were actually explosives in the garment

Another reported demand was a promise that Dilma Vana Rousseff, current president of Brazil, will not be reelected.

Local news reported that he had left behind three 'farewell' letters at his home. 

This morning firefighters and police cordoned off the area and about 300 guests and other employees left the hotel - some were reportedly told to leave by the same man carrying out the attack.

The hostage taker at one point threw an object from the balcony.  
Police didn't confirm whether there were actually explosives in the garment. 

'It has not been confirmed if the explosives are real -- we have taken all security measures,' a police spokesman said. 
The spokesman said the hostage taker had made a number of demands, including some of a political nature. 

Special Forces are also on the scene assessing the situation. 

The chairman of the Progressive Party (PP) of Combinado, Lindon Jonson Miguel da Silva, confirmed from pictures that the kidnapper is Souza dos Santo, the former Secretary of Agriculture and Livestock of the municipality, reports Fox News Latino.

'It was a big surprise for everyone.'
'He is a very good guy...We are praying for the family,' Jonson said, according to O Globo.
'No question it is psychological.' 

Eventually the hostage was freed and there no injuries or explosions.
The kidnapper was arrested and removed from the hotel by waiting police.  

Armed police are on standby outside the hotel in Brasilia should they be needed to storm the place
