LOS ANGELES   A pouch of diamonds left in a taxi
could have gone a long way toward helping a Los
Angeles cab driver achieve his dreams.

But he didn't keep the diamonds. He contacted the
passenger who left them.

It turns out they belonged to a New York jeweler, and
were worth 350-thousand dollars.

The cabbie, Haider Sediqi, discovered the pouch after
dropping off a passenger at Los Angeles International
Airport. When he opened it, he found about 100
diamonds, plus a cell phone bill.

He called the number and arranged to meet the owner at
the airport police station to return the diamonds.

The cabbie is an Afghan immigrant with two children
and a pregnant wife. He says he never considered
keeping the gems  even though his wife loves diamonds
and he dreams of opening a restaurant.

In his words, "God is up there. He always watches.
