Burundi's farmland crisis

Returning refugees face chronic food and job shortage after 15 years of war.

    Peace has come to Burundi after fifteen years of brutal conflict between the government and the Forces for National Liberation, the country's main rebel group.

    But as hundreds of thousands of Burundians return to their homeland from refugee camps abroad, they are now facing a new crisis - a chronic shortage of arable land.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from southern Burundi where many are suffering from a lack of jobs and food.
