A PARCHED LAND, a starving people; 


Once again, drought has cast its awful shadow over the blighted  
Horn of Africa. Three years of scant rainfall in southeast Ethiopia 
has left grazing  lands  parched,  killing  herds  of   livestock  and 
resulting in the starvation of thousands of  people  - a  situation 
that is expected to worsen alarming unless  both  large  amounts 
of aid and rain arrive soon.
Freelance photographer Seamus Murphy traveled to some of  the 
remotest  areas of the region to document  this  human  disaster.
