epa03380576 A photograph made available on 02 September 2012 showing a fisherman fishing of the dried lake-bed of the Mavrovo lake, which level is retreated some 15 meters from it's normal surface area near western city of Mavrovo ,The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia on 01 September 2012. Reports state that the western Balkan country's were hit by a major heat wave, with temperatures rising to 43 degrees Celsius. The high temperatures caused hundreds of fires in which 6500 hectare of forest were destroyed. The drought that has been present for more than 12 months has inflicted serious damage to Macedonian agriculture and stock breeders. The poor results in agriculture production will force Macedonia to import 60 per cent of it's needs for wheat which will causes serious economical losses. EPA/GEORGI LICOVSKI
