The Uzbekistan city of Muynak, which is found near the gradually drying up Aral Sea, has been named among the 'awesomely creepy' places in the world.
Having entered the list drawn up by Fox News, Muynak, which was once famous for being a center of wool production in the Soviet era, is the seventh scariest place in the world due to 90% of the Aral Sea having dried up.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has called the drying up of the Aral Sea one of the worst disasters of our name.
Furthermore, Soviet dumping of biological and chemical waste in this area has turned it into a dumping ground.Güncelleme Tarihi: 19 Ağustos 2014, 13:52
