Cameras not people?

Run, don't walk, over to Cricinfo, where the headline reads "TV cameras damaged in violence" in reporting on the riots that broke out at Guwahati after the abandonment of the fifth one-day international. Private property trumps human lives; its apparently more newsworthy to report on the damage to expensive equipment (owned perchance, by large corporations whose impression of India is so important) than the injuries that human beings (alas, only brown-skinned types) might have suffered.
