Amid Rolling Blackouts, There's Now A Water Shortage Gripping Iran

• by Tyler Durden

Both the energy and water crisis are deepening the outrage of the Iranian populace, after outgoing President Hasan Rouhani earlier this month issued an unprecedented statement admitting government mishandling of the energy situation

Protesters angry over water shortages marched through streets late Thursday in an oil-rich, restive province in southwestern Iran and police apparently fire weapons to disperse the crowds, online videos showed.

It wasn't immediately clear if anyone had been wounded or arrested in the protests across multiple cities in Khuzestan province, including its capital, Ahvaz.
