Egyptians take meat off the menu

Restaurants boycott red meat in protest at soaring prices.

    In Egypt, red meat has been taken off the menu at more than 1,000 restaurants and butcheries as they staged a one-day boycott in protest against soaring prices.

    Many Egyptians say they can not afford the 25 per cent leap in meat prices in the past month.

    Some have said greed is a main reason for the problem and have called on the government to help resolve it.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
