Drought Hits China

Severe drought is hitting China’s south-west region and in some places it is the worst drought for a century.

More than 60 million people are affected and it is estimated that billions of dollars worth of crops are now ruined.

The Chinese authorities have mobilised the armed forces to help get water to local people.

Large areas of south-west China have not had proper rainfall since October last year.
