A swarm of desert locusts is migrating from Yemen and Somaliland to the eastern part of Ethiopia, officials have told BBC Afaan Oromoo.

Groups of locusts has been spotted in five regions of Ethiopia, including Oromia, Amhara, Afar and Somali.

The swarm is made up of adults searching for a conducive environment to lay eggs which could cause significant damage to crops.

The government plans to start spraying chemicals in Afar, where the locusts are feared to be laying eggs, on Friday.
