Danish answerphone joke sparks police raid

An anti-terrorism squad raided the home of a Danish family after mistaking a light-hearted message on their answering machine for a hostage alert.

"We have been taken hostage by two children. Hurry. Help us after the beep. Now!" the message recorded by Lene Becker said, according to Denmark's Politiken newspaper.

But when relatives heard the recording, it sounded like: "We have been taken hostage WITH two children".
