Thanks to BBC for its earthquake's coverage

It's a bit difficult to talk about editorial quality when such a catastrophe happens. But BBC has done an incredible good work in a few hours in all the countries struck by the today's earthquake and tsunami. In my opinion, one very important thing is that national victims (in Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Indonesia...) were treated as well as foreign tourists. That's not the case in all coverage of this event: sometimes, you could think that only tourists were killed or injured.
