A severe drought is expected to worsen serious food shortages in North Korea, a South Korean expert said on Wednesday, as the UN food agency reported that three million people urgently need food aid.

A long dry spell has persisted throughout the North since late April, with some western coastal areas receiving just one tenth of the usual rainfall during the period, according to Pyongyang's state media.
