Behind the scenesEdit
This department is visited by SWAT officers on august 31st. Approximately 50 minutes ago, a group of armed men entered into the building and all of them were carrying assault rifles, bulletproof vests and Improvised Explosive Devices. They planned to raid the offices, plant the bombs then blow up the entire building, but unfortunately something went wrong. One of the bombs exploded prematurely and that caused a fire on the ground floor as well as in the basement. When the fire started to spread a fire department arrived and tried to extinguish the fire but they didn't know that the suspects were holding hostages inside the building. When the fire crew were shot at they retreated and called the police. It appears that the suspects are farmers who didn't like new government's policies about genetically modified crops - however they are far better armed than a normal farmer. The negotiators traded two hostages for two gas masks, but overall contact with them has been minimal. They occasionally spoke some anti-government rants. The suspects hadn't made any threats against the hostages but the police officers assume that in their intention was to first empty the whole building and then to destroy it, but since their clumsiness caused an unwanted explosion the officers are not waiting for them to make another mistake by killing a hostage either deliberately or accidentally. Also the police is particularly worried about Rita Winston since she section supervisor with the Department of Agriculture and if the suspects realize that she might have some government power they might single her out for retribution. The SWAT officers must go inside to rescue Rita Winston and other workers of the department as well as arrest or kill the suspects. The task is even more complicated because if the suspects had been carrying bombs it means that more of them are still inside. Also due to explosion, the electrical network in whole building is destroyed and interior is completely very dim. Also the explosion destroyed many parts of the building and there is a big hole in the middle of the building.
