The week's news at a glance.
The furor over child abductions spread to Britain last week, after two 10-year-old girls were reported kidnapped. Best friends Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman were last seen by their parents during a neighborhood barbecue. They were both wearing red Manchester United jerseys sporting the number of soccer hunk David Beckham. Police and friends searched for days with no leads. Then this week, a cab driver who was on duty in the area the day the girls disappeared said he saw two young girls in a car driven by a white man with a Mediterranean appearance. He said the man was struggling with the girls and the car was swerving erratically. The case has captured national attention, leading the news almost every night and dominating talk shows.
