I wonder if my mother had any idea how many lives were lost bringing these up from the earth?
Two tourists were watching a Manhattan maps, probably lost themselves in the big city, when suddenly a black van pulled over and a shooting took place. Two people were killed (a diamond dealer and an innocent bystander), while another dealer was kidnapped; the perp robbed a suitcase whose content was unknown, maybe it was something valuable, because they had just visited a bank vault. The van was found two days later in an industrial area with the kidnapped man inside strangled to death with his left hand chopped off. Due to the ammunition used in the robbery (UZI), the killer must have been a soldier; he worked as car salesman as a cover up and in his apartment policemen found the machete used for cutting out the dealer's hand. Anyway the soldier (a rebel from Sierra Leone) can't stage everything on his own, the diamond market has always been a bloody business...
This episode reminds me the movie "Lord of war" starring Nicholas Cage in which he sold weapons in war zone in exchange for diamonds; the control over that commodity is one of the main causes of war in African continent.
