Read the Transcript (Please note this segment was corrected on air on Sept. 28, 2002: In a story that aired on All Things Considered on August 31, we reported on water shortages in Palestinian communities on the West Bank, including the fact that half of those communities had no tap water. We reported the Palestinian view on the issue, but we should have also included an Israeli response. We regret the omission.)
