    Photographs of dead American presidents worth $500,000 managed to secure the release of the Indian truck drivers in Iraq, ending a crisis which erupted 6 weeks ago and was characterized almost throughout the period by inept handling by a bumbling government. First, there was invocation of religion, then negotiations broke down and finally a week ago, light at the end of the tunnel for the families. It is left to discussion on what percentage of the US$ 500,000 was dished out by the Indian government. There is however, of course, no guarantee that more Indians will not be kidnapped and the country held to ransom.

    Update: 12 Nepalese hostages have been killed.
