For Sale: Whole chickens, raw, eviscerated; from free-range, pastured chickens, raised on Manitoulin Island, Northern Ontario, Canada.

It was once called the Fertile Crescent. The Najaf area south of Baghdad used to feed most of Iraq but this year many farmers didn't even bother to cultivate their fields. Drought has brought water levels to dangerously low levels and with no irrigation, the fields are too parched to plough. A natural sound version of an AFPTV report.
