A man holds a handful of rice as he poses for the photographer in a rice factory in Jiaosi, Ilan County, April 7, 2008. Some rice exporters such as big growers Vietnam and India have restricted exports in order to keep more rice at home, pushing up international prices and threatening supplies to countries that depend on imports.
