Israel 'denies Palestinians water'

Israel is denying Palestinians access to even the basic minimum of clean, safe water, Amnesty International says.

In a report, the human rights group says Israeli water restrictions discriminate against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Israel says the report is flawed and the Palestinians get more water than was agreed under the 1990s peace deal.

Heather Sharp reports from Jerusalem.
