Waiting for groceries
Surrounded by spoiled and smashed food, Hannah El Saadawy and her child, Fahtima, sat outside Rouse's Supermarket in Metairie, La., as they waited for her husband to return from inside the store with supplies Wednesday. Looting of food and drinks ran wild in Metairie, and Jefferson Parish Deputies arrested some people after seeing that appliances and non-necessities were being stolen.
