Internationally, Chinese capital Beijing is placed only behind Brazil’s financial capital – São Paulo and India’s IT hub Bangalore, on a list of 11 other cities likely to run out of drinking water shortly, according to a BBC report.

The list ranks Cairo right after Beijing, followed by Jakarta, Moscow, Istanbul, Mexico City, London, Tokyo, and Miami.
