Khat tops coffee for Ethiopia farmers

Battered by drought and low coffee prices, farmers are now cultivating popular khat, a mild leafy narcotic.

Conflicts in South Sudan and Central African Republic are set to dominate the start of the African Union Summit in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

But the meeting will also be focusing on agriculture and food security.

It is an issue close to the hearts of Ethiopian farmers, who are turning to desperate solutions to solve their cash-flow problems.
