Nagesh Upadhyaya's "Siege!" (short story, terrorism, free): Chillingly plausible near future weapons of urban warfare
Gripping story of a plot with a situation that is a much simpler version of Bombay terror attacks last month - terrorists holding hostages.

Highlight is the chillingly realistic fighting gadgets near end - very plausible without too far fetched technology.
