Kenya drought taking its toll

One of the worst droughts in living memory is taking its toll on both people and wildlife in Kenya.

Clashes over land and water lead to the deaths of 32 people last week, with community leaders warning there will be more violence.

Meanwhile, in Samburu district at least 24 elephants have either starved or been shot by poachers looking for food.

Peter Greste reports from northern Kenya.
