Angkor Wat ruins on shaky ground

Cambodia's famous temple ruins under threat of collapse due to over-consumption of water.


    The famous temple ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia are under the threat of being destroyed as a dwindling supply of water due to over-consumption weakens the nine-centuries-old structures' grounds.

    Aela Callan reports from Siem Reap, Cambodia on the problem that stems from a high demand for water to meet the requirements of more than one million tourists who visit the country every year.
