Bolivia fights back as crops hit by plague of locusts

Chemical spraying begins in Bolivia's eastern grain region as thousands of hectares of crops are threatened by a plague of locusts.

The locusts were first reported in January and have already taken over 1,000 hectares in the province of Santa Cruz.

Bolivian President Evo Morales said it was the first time his country had seen locusts.
