Mongolia is experiencing extreme cold weather and heavy snow mainly in the southern province of Dundgobi, which has seriously disrupted the lives of herders and killed numerous livestock.

Due to a drastic drop in temperatures from late 2009 to early this year, 80 percent of Mongolia's territory was covered with snow 20 centimeters to 90 centimeters deep.
