Israel, Jordan and Palestine sign water deal

The agreement brings a long-awaited Red Sea-Dead Sea pipeline one step closer to completion.

    Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority have signed a water-sharing agreement.

    The deal would also see the building of a desalination plant and a pipeline from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea.

    As Gerald Tan reports, the project is both ambitious and contentious.
