Food crisis in Niger

epa03384919 A photograph made available 05 September 2012 shows Adra Ousmane, a farmer from Niger examining the grains that have gone bad on his land in the southern town of Guidan Roumdji, Niger, on 01 September 2012. He blamed the lack of harvest on the insect attacks saying, 'What little we have left is threatened by the worms and when it rains, the rest of it falls. We want to put our hands on our heads and cry with despair and misfortune'.‚ Niger and other countries in the Sahel are currently facing a food crisis due to high food prices, drought, crop failures and withering livestock. Other factors including recent floods and the influx of refugees from Mali, has exacerbated the costs of food insecurity. The rates of malnutrition have risen across the region and many families have resorted to selling their animals far below normal market prices to cope. EPA/
