Sudan's poor hit by rising prices

Inflation and a weakening currency are compounding problems for low income families.

    Sudan's poor are increasingly finding essential items such as bread and sugar priced out of their reach due to inflation and the depreciation of their country's currency.

    Rising prices are another blow amid the political uncertainty ahead of a planned referendum on independence for Sudan's south.
