Drought brings famine fears to North Korea

Months without rain have devastated crops, with two-thirds of population facing food shortages.

    North Korea has seen some much needed rain after a two-month long drought that devastated crops across the country. 

    Many fear that the downpour has come too late to late to fix the damaged crops, however, as about two-thirds of the population reportedly faces chronic food shortages.
