Mideast battered by "perfect storm" of trends
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Saturday that the Middle East is being battered by a "perfect storm" of trends from youth unemployment to depleting water and oil resources.
"The region is being battered by a perfect storm of powerful trends," she said.
Clinton said that a "growing majority" of its people are under the age of 30 and many cannot find work against a backdrop of depleting oil and water resources.
