From the last 2 days, Karachi has been getting massive swarms of locusts passing through every corner of the city. Many people took to Twitter to share the horrifying view.

The Pakistan Agricultural Ministery has attempted to pacify the angered residents, who have blamed the ministry for this menace, by assuring that fumigation process will soon be carried out to control the attack. Pakistan had last experienced a locust attack on a similar scale last in 1961.

Experts in Pakistan have reportedly stated that the swarms of locusts have rushed in from coastal Balochistan due to heavy rains in South Sindh and Balochistan in monsoon. The ministry of food security has also assured Karachi citizens that the species will pose no threat to food crops.
