Pakistan to set up national locust control cell to combat insects swarms: Minister

The Pakistan government will set up a national body to combat the locust swarms across the country as the insects have destroyed crops and vegetation on vast tracts of lands in 60 out of total 135 districts, information minister Shibli Faraz said. He said the efforts to control locusts were going on under a national strategy as there was a dire need to deal with it.
