Welcoming the top leader vs saving lives

It is reported that when China president Hu Jintao paid his first visit to the earthquake region yesterday, the rescuers stopped their race against the time to save those buried underneath the collapsed buildings for two hours, just to welcome Hu.

Soldiers, armed police and firefighters queued up to welcome Hu during his visit to the Beichuan county, one of the hard hit areas by the powerful 7.9-magnitude Sichuan earthquake, according to South China Morning Post.
