    Anagrammed Countries and their Capitals

    These anagrams are countries of the world and their capitals. Answer with country and then its capital. This is tough, so a hint is given.

    1. Faked inn in hills (Scandinavian country)

    2. Ma! Coca cola's Carbon (North African capital, economic capital)

    3. Ethical ion gas (South American country)

    4. Bust up hydrangea (Central European country)

    5. Dog wants broader bib (Caribbean country)

    6. Megaphone end crank (Small Scandinavian country)

    7. Maids laugh, as I moo (African country)

    8. Aha faulting banks (Asian war-torn country)

    9. Rub Sue's leg limbs (European country)

    10. Can veal raze sauce (South American country)

    Chris, McScruffy got the one you left out; but excellent job, though.

    It would've been more challenging had I left the hints out.

    And Wilmer, I like that anagram as well. I have posted some pretty unusual ones myself in the past. Glad you all enjoy them.
