Houston: A group of gunmen stormed into a restaurant and a pizza cafe in the US city of Houston in broad daylight, holding up customers and employees and robbing them. They fled without causing more harm, media reported.

Five men wearing masks broke into a Thai restaurant in northwest Houston during lunchtime Wednesday, Xinhua reported, citing KHOU television channel.
