The Muslims (officially French and EU citizens) in Mayotte have been complaining about the cost of living for the last couple of weeks, especially the cost of chicken wings. [No, really. I'm not making that part up.] Strikes, demonstrations and violence have paralysed the country. More benefits have been promised to them but the Muslims say it's not enough and the money will take too long to come. The news clip here [in French] shows them confronting the police and describes how they extort money from passing motorists, charging them 2-5 euros a time to go through.

One of the Muslims admitted the truth:
Prices are so high because we import everything and don't produce anything.
