"Israel on Sunday formed a panel of government ministers and some of the country's leading economic experts to draw up a plan to reduce the soaring cost of living, marking a new effort to defuse demonstrations over prices that drew over a quarter-million people onto the streets the night before. The announcement comes after three weeks of mushrooming protests sparked by complaints over housing costs." (08/07/11)
