report Agencia EFE

Asuncion, Oct 07, 1999 (EFE via COMTEX) -- Indians in Paraguay's Chaco, an expansive semi-arid and scarcely populated region, are plagued with the worst drought in a decade, causing conditions so desperate that "many are so weak they can barely walk," church spokesmen told EFE.

Habitually, rain this time of year is a rare occurrence in the three provinces of the Chaco, but this year the drought has been especially wrenching.

The most critical situation is in the province of Boqueron which includes the so-called Central Chaco and borders with Bolivia and Argentina.
