[BBC] The soaring cost of food is threatening millions of people in poor countries, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has warned.
..Food prices have risen an unprecedented 40% in the last year and many nations may be unable to cope, the agency says.
…The increases are partly due to droughts and floods linked to climate change, as well as rising oil prices boosting demand for bio-fuels, the FAO said.
