Burkina Faso food crisis worsened by influx

Drought-stricken country struggles to cope as more than 60,000 Malians cross border to escape fighting.



    Fighting between government forces and Tuareg fighters in Mali has forced tens of thousands of people to flee across
    the border into Burkina Faso.

    But Burkina Faso itself is experiencing a severe drought, and resources to cope with the influx of more than 60,000
    Malians are increasingly scarce.
