Letter: Send unwanted food to Bosnia

RECENTLY we have witnessed the destruction of a mound of liquor seized by customs officials in England and, across the Channel, the wanton destruction of fresh fish by French fishermen protesting at cheap importation.

Instead of this unbearable wastage, surely intelligent negotiators could have diverted these commodities to Bosnia- Herzegovina to relieve the starvation and suffering there. It might even have reduced the risk of death in the marketplaces where hungry people gather.
