Nile flows into row

, March 23, 2014

Boats cruise in the river Nile in Cairo on March 23. Ethiopia - plagued by frequent blackouts - plans to boost power generating capacity from 2,000 MW to 10,000 MW within the next three to five years, much of it coming from the 6,000 MW Grand Renaissance Dam under construction on the Nile. Egypt fears the $4.7 billion dam, which Ethiopia wants to construct near its border with Sudan, will reduce water flows vital for its 84 million people and its agriculture.  Reuters/Amr Abdallah Dalsh
