Gaza farmers battle tomato moths

Insects are ruining crops in the already impoverished Gaza Strip.

    Farmers in the Gaza Strip are battling an army of moths. The insects are threatening the Palestinian territory's tomato crop that earns the impoverished area more than $60 million a year.

    The problem is so bad that the Israeli government has allowed traps to be especially brought into Gaza to capture as many as possible.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Gaza.
