RAIN-STARVED regions of Cambodia were drenched with showers for the first time in years yesterday but officials warned it may not be enough to head off a major drought.

Cambodia's dry season usually begins in late November and lasts until May. But this year there have been occasional showers in December and January. Agriculture officials say the upcoming dry-season rice harvest will be badly hit by the water shortage.
