Locust swarms may be heading for Darfur

Experts say that the locust swarms in parts of north and west Africa may be heading for Darfur.

"Millions of locusts may be heading for Sudan's Darfur region, pest control experts said Wednesday, where violence has already created a humanitarian disaster and two million people are short of food and medicine. If locust swarms do hit, insecurity in the remote western region would prevent an effective control operation, they said."
