Khartoum (Agenzia Fides) – The people of Khartoum have to wait in long lines to buy a little bread from the bakeries which often have to close because of the scarcity of flour. A woman in the state of Khartoum told the local Radio Dabanga about long lines for bread in every district and that the price of flour has risen and so has the price for transport of cooking gas. The same difficulty faces the people in El Kalakla and Jabra districts , forced to stand in long lines for hours and sometimes without getting any bread. Here too when the flour runs out bakeries have to close.
