HUNDREDS HELD HOSTAGE, PAGE A28

HUNDREDS HELD HOSTAGE, PAGE A28: It's terrific that the sniper team have been caught. But wasn't the three-day stand-off in Moscow (which just ended in an assault, as these things tend to in Russia) a way bigger story than the coverage seemed to imply? At least with the shameful downplaying of the bombing in Bali, the snipings were actually going on. But they were caught, and the on-going drama in Moscow was still considered secondary to repeating that the guys were caught. I know more local stories get more weight, but this was a little absurd.
