The properties behind this wall started to collapse as you can see on the following page. The owners' 17 year battle with the property developer responsible continues to this day as you can read on the 'Chloraka Sunset website'.

The walls of Jericho
The collapse of this retaining wall of a home in the Pine Villas development in Pissouri wasn't caused by marching Israelites blowing their trumpets, but by just five minutes of heavy rain. 'Act of God' blurted the developer, presumably a reference to the Old Testament Bible story.
But after much media attention the wall was repaired - whether it will withstand the next heavy winter rains remains to be seen.
