Video: Egyptians struggle for bread

On World Food Day, we report on how rising food prices is affecting Egypt.

    The UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation says there are now over one billion malnourished people worldwide.

    Aid agencies have said the alarming trend is caused by rising prices, poverty and security issues.

    In a special series here on Al Jazeera, Amr al-Kahky reports from Egypt on how difficult it is for people there to buy the basic necessities.
