Gorilla escapes from Rotterdam zoo

Rotterdam’s Blijdorp zoo was evacuated on Friday afternoon after a male silverback gorilla escaped from its enclosure. A team of marksmen were at the zoo to try to tranquilise the animal. It is not yet clear how the gorilla got out.
One woman was taken to hospital but it was not clear if she was injured by the gorilla or during the evacuation.
