A helicopter of the Swiss Army delivers water from a reservoir in the region of Marchairuz, Switzerland, July 21. Soldiers were ordered to help keep cows in the far west of the country cool amid a weeklong heat wave. Water was taken from a French lake, setting off a dispute because water restrictions for agriculture are in place in most of France.
