Jackpot for Sudan

Sometimes you can gather more information from a news site than they actually intend to give you - especially if two particular news items are placed right next to each other. 'Added value', I suppose a friend of mine would say.

This is how the NZZ English Window looked earlier today- puts certain things into perspective, doesn't it?

Swiss make aid pledge to Sudan
Switzerland has pledged $75 million (SFr89.5 million) in aid to Sudan over the next three years at an international donor conference in Norway.

Casinos hit the jackpot
Swiss casinos had a winning year in 2004, taking in SFr769 million ($645 million), an increase of 37 per cent on the previous year.
