An army of locusts coming from the Pakistan side has laid siege to a western Indian border district.

Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district is witnessing the biggest attack in 26 years, said the Locust Warning Organisation (LWO), headquartered in Jodhpur.

According to the officials, locust hunters are trying to limit the damage.

The last major locust outbreak was reported in Rajasthan in 1993.
