The Wider Image: Fears at Nile's convergence in Sudan that new dam will sap river's strength
Mutasim al-Jeiry, 50, a pottery maker, checks his mobile phone as he sits inside his workshop in an area known as the "Potters Village" in Alqamayir, Omdurman, Sudan, February 17, 2020. The dam "will stabilise the Nile and we will get less flooding", said al-Jeiry. "But on the other hand we will get less clay and less water. Farmers, brick and pottery makers will be seriously affected", he predicts. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "BENSEMRA NILE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
