Venezuela rations water supplies


Large parts of the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, will be without water for up to 48 hours over the next week after officials began water rationing.

The measure is the start of a possible six months of rationing before the rainy season in Venezuela begins again.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said the unseasonably dry past few months have caused the water shortage.

Will Grant reports.
