Syria helps Arab states hit by wheat shortage
Syria is donating hundreds of thousands of tons of wheat to Egypt, Jordan and Yemen.
Those three states have been hit by a shortage, while Syria - at the heart of the Fertile Cresent - has a surplus.
Jordan and Yemen will get 50,000 tons each, and Egypt gets 176,000 tons.
As Egyptian blogger D.B. Shobrawy points out, what is even more interesting is that Bashar and Mubarak and Abdullah don't exactly have the best relationship.
