NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) — As police and National Guard troops struggled to restore order Thursday in New Orleans, emergency teams suspended boat rescue operations because conditions in the flooded city were too dangerous, rescuers said.

The instructions to stand down came during a meeting with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

CNN’s Rick Sanchez reported that authorities were concerned for the rescuers’ safety because some people have become violent toward the rescuers.

He said officials were trying to figure out how to safely resume rescues.

Translation from PC newspeak: "people are going to die because the emergency personnel are being shot at by the looters."
