The price for scallions is displayed in both old and new leu in a market in Bucharest March 1, 2005. Romania starts the leu currency redenomination process by slashing four zeroes off its leu starting July 1, 2005 to better fight inflation, one of the highest in the region. Starting today, shops across the country will show prices in both the old and the new currency. One new Romanian leu will be the equivalent of 10,000 old lei. REUTERS/Mihai Barbu MB/THI
