they say lots of people may be trapped under.
The Israeli rescue team is leaving to Nairobi tonight.
(When Bin-Laden bombed the American embassies at Dar & Nairobi - a model for 9/11- Kenyans told me that the Israeli team has done a great job on the buildings around the embassy, while the Americans were minding only their own building...)

The Israelis were also the first on-site at the Tsunami, saw one quick glimpse (on CNN) of their plane on tarmac at BKK, hours after the floods... then never again. Sure they were checking on their own, as many Israeli holiday here. But in most instances, even in Muslim countries - "they're Yacov on the spot."

New York Times -today 23rd Jan:
"More than 280 construction workers were inside when the unfinished structure in central Nairobi came down, but officials said it was unclear how many were still caught in the rubble."
