N Korea suffers worst drought in 37 years

BBC
North Korea has said, it is suffering its worst drought in 37 years. The country's state media outlet KCNA said, only 54.4 mm of rain was recorded throughout the country in the first five months of the year. 

It was the lowest level recorded since 1982. KCNA said, North Koreans have been asked to battle against the crop damage caused by it.

The appeal comes after a UN report said up to 10 million North Koreans were in urgent need of food assistance. 

The report said, North Koreans had been surviving on just 300 grams of food a day so far this year. It said, North Korea's crop output in 2018 hit the lowest level since 2008.

In the 1990s, a devastating famine is believed to have killed hundreds of thousands of North Koreans.
