DEATH STALKS PARCHED VANNI

Cattle in the Killinochchi and Mullaitivu areas are denied grazing land and water due to the acute drought gripping most of the Vanni. Herders and dairy owners say tending to cattle and buffaloe herds had become an acute problem due to the shortage of grassland and water. Cattle and buffaloes now stray far looking for grasslands and water and many get lost and die or cannot be traced. (Inset):A buffalo starved to death.
