Photos by Hadi Jafarzadeh, ISNA
Karun River passes through the city of Ahvaz in Iran's southwestern Khuzestan Province. Karun is another victim of drought and poor planning of the water resources feeding the river. These photos by ISNA photographer Hadi Jafarzadeh show parts of the river that have completely dried out.
Karun is Iran's most effluent, and the only navigable, river. It is 450 miles (720 km) long. It rises in the Zard Kuh mountains of the Bakhtiari district in the Zagros range, receiving many tributaries, such as the Dez and the Kuhrang, before passing through the capital of the Khuzestan province of Iran, the city of Ahvaz.
