Mozambique runs out of rubber bullets, goes 4th and kills 6 people

As protests against a 30% rise in the price of bread continue, things are getting serious. The riots are entering their second day with the government admitting four deaths while “credible sources” put the number anywhere between six and ten people dead, including two young children.

The reason for these tragic deaths? While trying to control the protesters, Mozambique police ran out of rubber bullets and began using live rounds instead. Which is obviously the right thing to do, rather than, say, stop shooting at unarmed civilians who are simply protesting because they can no longer afford even the staple of a loaf of bread.
