The U.N. rights chief, Volker Turk has blamed Russia’s withdrawal from the Black Sea grain and its alleged attacks on agricultural facilities for higher food prices that have been particularly damaging in the Horn of Africa.

Turk said this today at the opening of the Human Rights Council session in Geneva, stating that Russia’s withdrawal from the Black Sea Grain Initiative in July, and attacks on grain facilities in Odesa and elsewhere, have again forced prices sky-high in many developing countries.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Pacific port residents say a visit by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is highly anticipated in the coming weeks with reports suggesting that Kim may be on his way already.

Kim’s trip is still unconfirmed, although U.S. officials and South Korea’s intelligence agency said it was possible.
