Severe drought in parts of Ethiopia

A severe drought in Ethiopia's eastern Afar and southern Somali regions is threatening food supplies as crops and animals lack sufficient water. Water resources are also unusually low in the central and eastern Oromo region, and northern Tigray and Amhara districts. Approximately 4.5 million people may be at risk for lack of food.
