Food supply worries in Libya

In a country 90 per cent of the food is imported, violence has sent prices skyrocketing.

    The UN recently announced that global food prices have hit an all-time high, and nowhere is this more evident than in Libya, a country that depends on imports for more than 90 per cent of its food.

    High oil prices and the rising cost of basic food could threaten future political stability, too.
