Iranians hold mass protest over poor water management amid drought

Select Language:

Thousands of people, many of them farmers, rallied in Isfahan in central Iran on November 19 to decry what they say is poor water management amid persistent drought. Apart from brief periods, the Zayandeh Rood River that runs through the city has been dry since 2000. Isfahan residents have been protesting for years over the diversion of its waters to neighboring Yazd Province.
