Thousands riot in Somalia over food prices
_____________________________

.
5 May 08 - Tens of thousands of people rioted over high food prices in Somalia’s capital Monday, hurling stones and prompting hundreds of shops to close. 

Prices of rice and other food staples have been rising rapidly around the world, boosted by poor weather in some nations and rising demand. The increases have led to violent protests in Haiti and Egypt and concerns of unrest elsewhere amid profiteering and hoarding.

                As I said in “Not by Fire but by Ice,” I think we’ll
                be fighting in the streets for food long before we’re
                covered by ice.
