    Afghanistan's opium poppies have been hit by a mysterious disease, with some farmers accusing the United States and Britain of spraying their crops with chemicals.

    A fungus has struck half of the country's crop, which means opium production is set to fall.

    Afghanistan is the main supplier of the world's heroin, with local populations economically dependent on the drugs trade.
