A woman floats in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea at the Ein Bokek Hotels complex at the Dead Sea in southern Israel. The inland sea which separates between Israel and Jordan is retreating by about a meter a year as the two countries divert almost 90% of the Jordan River waters that for thousands of years fed the mineral-rich sea. They are now seeking international support for a plan to pipe water north from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Dead Sea to rescue the shrinking sea. Photo by Quique Kierszenbaum
