Ethiopia drought: 'More trouble predicted'

After two failed rains and the threat from El Nino, Ethiopia is suffering its worst drought in decades.

More than 10 million people need emergency aid, crops have failed and the lack of water is putting livestock at risk.

Ethiopia is more prepared to deal with drought than in 1984, when hundreds of thousands of people died in the famine, but in some parts of the country, international help is still needed.

Alastair Leithead reports from eastern Ethiopia.
