New life returns to Israel's 'river of death'
The cleanup of the Kishon is one of several successful efforts to rehabilitate some of the country's most polluted streams.
The Kishon River has for years been associated with death. Naval commandos, forced to train in its polluted waters, claim that they contracted cancer as a result. Yet today, that stream is the source of new life - fish, birds and other wildlife are returning to it, after a massive government cleanup operation.
