One of the world’s largest water pipelines went on stream on Saturday, with the Turkish president turning the taps on the 80 kilometre-long project, that lies 250 metres below the Mediterranean. It supplies the Turkish Cypriots of northern Cyprus with water from Turkey’s Alakopru Dam, and has cost nearly 380 million euros. Cyprus lacks water resources of its own.
