Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak warned Monday that the unchecked rise of the population would wipe away all the returns of the country’s economic growth.

Mubarak’s remarks came during a Cabinet meeting to address the acute shortages of subsidized bread that have hurt millions of the nation’s poor as well as a lack of housing to meet the rising demand.

“The unrestricted growth of the population is a national issue that affects the quality of the citizen’s life and the nation as well,” the president was quoted as saying by his spokesman Suleiman Awwad.
