Photo: Four Killed Over Nile Dam Project That Threatens Nubian Towns



Workers put the last touches on the walls of the Nubia Museum in Aswan, which pays tribute to Egypt's African minority. Waters behind the Aswan High Dam flooded dozens of Nubian villages in Sudan and Egypt and forced almost 100,000 people to relocate in the 1960s.

Now a new proposed dam in northern Sudan is dredging up those bitter memories—and the latest protest against the project has left four Nubian villagers dead.
