This coming summer, 35 million Iranians, nearly half the country's population of 80 million, will face an acute water crisis, according to a report released today in the country's Donya-e Eqtesad economic newspaper.

A dramatic rise in population, global warming, and an ongoing 14 year drought have led to the current crisis, the newspaper reports.
