Red Cross warns of food crisis in N. Korea as crops fail in heatby Reuters
A heat wave in North Korea has led to rice, maize and other crops withering in the fields, “with potentially catastrophic effects,” the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said on Friday.
The world’s largest disaster relief network warned of a risk of a “full-blown food security crisis” in the isolated country, saying that the worrying situation had been exacerbated by international sanctions imposed due to North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.
