Fuzzy Numbers

How come when there is a bombing in israel the media always reports half the actual numbers, INCLUDING the bomber. Then over the next week the number always doubles.

But when tragedy stikes in other parts of the country the overestimate by double. Yesterday I read reports that anywhere from 1,000 to 2,500 people were killed the in latest earthquakes in Indonisia. This morning i listen to the news and I hear them say, estimates were down to 500 people.
