UK ban means Somalia flooded with low price khat

Khat - a plant used as a stimulant - was banned as a class C drug in the UK earlier this year.

This has meant that its mainly Kenyan producers and exporters have been forced to direct their supplies closer to home - Somalia - flooding the market and driving prices down.
