Soaring prices hit Kyrgyzstan

UN says many are struggling to feed themselves following ethnic violence.


    Kyrgyzstan's ongoing conflict has had a devastating effect on the country's economy.

    The ethnic violence that erupted in June has disrupted trade networks, leading to a massive increase in food and fuel prices.

    The United Nation says more than a quarter of the population across the country are stuggling to get sufficient food.

    Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier Walker reports from southern Kyrgyzstan.
