    Students roll a tyre during a protest against the government's plan to raise subsidized fuel prices, near the fuel station in Jakarta March 15, 2012. Indonesia's government is considering hiking up fuel prices, which are currently subsidised, by as much as 44 percent this year to reduce the burden of subsidies on the state's budget so that they can use these funds on roads instead, the deputy energy minister told Reuters.

    A protester shouts slogans on the second day of a protest against a removal of fuel subsidies in Lagos in this January 10, 2012 file photo. In January, hundreds of thousands of Nigerians took part in the biggest protests in the history of Africa's most populous nation. Sparked by a hike in state-subsidised petrol prices, they were fuelled by anger at the graft that has for decades channelled oil wealth into the pockets of its elites. Those who have grown rich on Nigeria's oil usually avoid talking about graft, let alone tackling it. But sometimes the anger of a public impoverished by decades of malfeasance forces action. Responding to a public outcry, the government has in recent weeks announced a raft of measures to address corruption in the oil sector, an issue that may come to define Goodluck Jonathan's presidency almost as much as the Islamist insurgency in the north.
