TEHRAN: Hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets in western Iran over a lack of drinking water and the inability of officials to solve the problem, state media said Thursday.
Iran, a largely arid country, has for years suffered chronic dry spells and heat waves that are expected to worsen with climate change.
In the past few months, thousands of people angry over the drying up of rivers have been driven to protest, particularly in central and southwestern Iran.
