8 Feb 10 - "Local experts have told the Red Cross half the entire country's livestock could be wiped out," says this article in Australia's Herald Sun.

Cattle, goats and sheep have frozen to death across the plains, with some herds almost completely wiped out.

Called the 'Dzud' - a multiple disaster with a summer drought followed by one of the coldest winters on record - it has left millions of livestock dying from a combination of exhaustion and starvation - some herders report that their cattle perish at the rate of 50 a night.

Fears are also growing for thousands of herders who live in remote mountain regions in south-western Mongolia.

There has been no word from thousands of people cut off in their villages by the heaviest snow fall in decades.
