The Wider Image: Middle East's Fertile Crescent dries up as rains fail 
Ali Elwan, 56, and his son Abdul Amir Ali, 23, walk in the courtyard of Abbas Elwan's home, in the village of Al-Bu Hussain which sits on the bank of a former canal which has dried up, in Diwaniya, Iraq, October 14, 2022. Ali's brother, Abbas Elwan, committed suicide in August after attempts to find water for his parched farmlands failed. Abbas received a monthly unemployment allowance, but with dwindling crops and rising food prices he went into debt. In desperation, he tried digging wells to grow vegetables. Each well cost the equivalent of his monthly allowance. Each time water would emerge for a few days, and then dry up. "That was his last hope, and there was no water," Ali told Reuters.
