Students suffer water shortage in drought
Students wait in lines to get water from a truck on a school playground in Xihe township, Suizhou city, Central China's Hubei province, May 26, 2011. The drought has left 5,400 residents and two schools in Xihe short of drinking water. A total of 917,000 mu (61,000 hectares) of crops were affected by the lingering drought, and 75,100 people and 16,920 heads of livestock were suffering from a drinking water shortage. [Photo/Xinhua]
