  • Description

    East Africa is facing a major new threat from locusts. A warning from the seven-nation Locust Control Organisation says the African wars of the past few years have prevented routine measures to control the insects, which have been breeding in parts of Ethiopia and Somalia for hundreds of years. Now, officials in Somalia fear that bigger than usual swarms may move deeper into Africa, devastating the farmlands of Kenya and Tanzania. Brian Barron of the British Broadcasting Corporation filed this report from the area and spoke to the Director of Operations for locust control in Somalia, Mr. Mohamed Abdi Ghelle.
