Oddly enough?

I was wondering why this article was in Yahoo! News’s “Oddly Enough” section, until I came to the very end of the piece.

The canned mackerel from the World Food Program was not to be distributed Monday, but put into storage. Crowds watched as boxes of food were shifted to trucks by local residents under the supervision of troops carrying automatic rifles.

Is it just me, or is that a little scary?

I understand not wanting people to riot and/or take all the food…but automatic rifles?
