Egypt-Ethiopia tensions over new dam rise again

Ethiopia is pushing on with construction of its massive new dam, despite growing objections from Egypt. The controversial project has strained relations between the two nations, because Egypt, which lies downstream, sees it as a risk to its water supply from the Blue Nile. Al Jazeera's Mohammed Vall has visited the site of the $5bn project, which will one day be Africa's biggest hydroelectric dam. - Subscribe to our channel: - Follow us on Twitter: - Find us on Facebook: - Check our website:

We visited a Nubian village. The Nubian civilization is one of the oldest in the world

Aswan is the smallest of the three major tourist cities on the Nile. Being the furthest south of the three, it has a large population of Nubian people, mostly resettled from their homeland in the area flooded by Lake Nasser. Aswan is the home of many granite quarries from which most of the Obelisks seen in Luxor were sourced. Aswan was the ancient Egyptians' gateway. Nubia (southern Egypt, the area around Aswan) lies on the border between the Arab and African worlds and is also called "the gateway to Africa." The Nubians seem to lack the Egyptians; both their appearance and their culture is closely related to that of the more southern African peoples. The Nubians have a strong social bond. Which is reinforced by the joint history: The construction of the dam at Aswan the Nubians lost their original habitat. The dam Lake Nasser, emerged with a length of 500 km the largest reservoir in the world. It extends far into Sudan. The lake, built to provide electricity to Egypt was once the collective trauma of the Nubians. In the lake almost all Nubia disappeared. Tens of thousands of people were evacuated to the area around Aswan to Sudan. Nubian monuments have been moved to higher ground with the help of the international community. Since 1997, in the Nubian museum the history of the Nubians preserved; a paltry concession to a people who lost his land forever. In the Nubian museum are hundreds of art and objects from the drowned land gathered . The Nubian civilization is one of the oldest in the world. Because no written language has survived, but the Nubian has survived only as a spoken language is to this culture little research. The Nubian history has gone through a particularly rich development. Ancient Nubia had gold mines and the area on the main trade route with the rest of Africa. To ensure the supply of raw materials conquered the ancient Egyptians in the pharaonic period very often areas. Nubia, a country south of Upper Egypt, had a large gold reserve.
