Peru say glaciers 'melting at alarming rate'

Experts have warned that Peru's glaciers are melting at an alarming rate, threatening the survival of an estimated 30 million people.

The water from the glaciers is used to generate hydro power and for irrigation.

Scientists say the glaciers have lost more than one-fifth of their mass in just three decades due to global warming.
