Everything seemed to be going rell. However, there were people who not only smelted a rat in the whole episode, but were offended by the behaviour ot Uie Abdulaev family as well.

It is all very commendable and very appropriate, but ob- servers can be forgiven a de- gree of scepticisms about such assurances.
