A woman walks on a cracked river bank along the Ganjiang River in Nanchang, East China's Jiangxi Province December 3, 2007. Water level in the Ganjiang, a tributary of China's largest River, the Yangtze, is at record low due to insufficient rainfall. Severe drought in China had left 3.2 million people short of drinking water, according to figures released by the Office of the State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters in November.
