More food riots in Indonesia

A crowd in the town of Kraksaan in East Java has attacked and looted food shops to protest against rising prices caused by Indonesia's economic crisis.

It was the latest in a series of protests in East Java, where food prices have doubled in recent weeks.

Earlier this month, Indonesia agreed to implement a harsh austerity package, aimed at restoring economic stability.
