A cloud of locusts

Clouds of insects slowed traffic Thursday in Madagascar's capitol city of Antananarivo.

The island nation has been dealing with locusts for more than two years.

The government announced a three-year emergency plan last September, saying the locusts threatened the food supply for more than 13 million people. A government official says the latest swarm is happening because of unusually high temperatures.
