(Studio) Report on Tuaregs, now suffering from drought.
REPORTER: Floyd Kalber
(Africa) Tuaregs are proud, nomadic people. Called "bluemen of desert." They look down on black Africans and enslave them. Govts., especially black, are alien to them. Size of cattle herd is sign of prestige. Tuaregs now depend on government for food and water. Tuaregs separated from other tribes in camps. Tuaregs viewed with suspicion by black government Diet change causes illness. Govt. wants them to farm; they'd rather roam, but need government for survival.
