Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - Why is the Dead Sea Dying?

 

The famous Dead Sea, a salt lake between Jordan and the occupied West Bank and present-day Israel, has been shrinking at the alarming rate of 1.5 meters a year in recent decades. So why is the Dead Sea dying?
Malihe Razazan talks to Palestinian enviromentalist, Muna Dajani, about the Red Sea-Dead Sea Water Conveyance Project, a 10 billion dollar program attempting to revive the Dead Sea, sponsored by the World Bank.
Later in the program, we will mark the 11th anniversary of the war Iraq with Sinan Antoon reading from his book of poems, Baghdad Blues.
