Elder Nelson Robbed in Mozambique

What: The Deseret News reports that Elder Nelson (of the Quorum of 12 Apostles) and Sister Wendy Nelson were robbed by armed assailants while having dinner with a mission president and his wife, President and Sister Packard, at the mission home. Sister Packard suffered injuries, including a broken arm, in the attack.

Quote: "Elder and Sister Nelson will continue their assignment over the weekend as planned."

Reaction: This is sad and shocking news, but I'm glad that everyone is alive (as far as it's been reported). Amazing that the Nelsons are going to continue their assignment. Reminds me of the time Joseph Smith was tarred and feathered, but chose to preach to the Saints the next day anyway.
Update: Video coverage available here.
