No tap

150,000 Palestinians in Gaza (around 10 percent of the population) are struggling without tap water as a result of the damage caused to wells, pipes and waste water facilities during the recent 23-day Israeli offensive which ended on 18 January." (Thanks Marcy)

I wonder what the corporate organizers of the World Water Forum would make out of that? Maybe they'll call for privatizing reconstruction?
