Bulgarian Bread Panic

PLOVDIV, Bulgaria () -- Bulgarians vented their anger against the socialist government on Wednesday as panic over dwindling bread supplies swept the country.


"This villainous government has to go because it plundered even the bread from the people," Tsvetana Boyanova, a construction engineer, said while waiting in line.


Plovdiv, Bulgaria's second city, virtually ran out of bread on Monday when it produced only 17,000 loaves against a daily demand of 100,000.
