If you click on "GO" after searching, you will see news from a number of good aid agencies: relief web - Africa - locusts - NGO's.
Here is a story on the ReliefNet news site:
----------------FEWSNET fact sheet on the current situation in Niger In order to avoid mis-information and mis-interpretation of the facts on the ground, FEWS Net has developed an overview of the facts behind the current crisis in Niger. The document highlights that the current food crisis not is a temporary emergency and that while media repeatedly has referred to famine and starvation, the situation is rather characterized by a very severe, but localized, food security crisis in some pastoral and agro-pastoral areas of northern Maradi, Tillabery, Zinder, and Tahoua departments caused by an early end of last year's rains, locust damage to some pasture lands, current high prices of food, and chronic non-food causes of malnutrition. The document can be downloaded from humanitarianinfo.org/westafrica/niger.
