Ethiopia says more than two million people in the country's northern region are in need of food aid following the destruction of their crops by drought and floods.

The Regional Disaster Prevention and Preparedness Commission says more than 80-thousand tonnes of food will be needed to feed people in the affected Amhara region until the end of next year.

Northern Ethiopia was experiencing severe drought before the recent torrential rains which have soaked much of east Africa.
