Nile - Lifeblood of Cairo - 27 June 2013
Reuters photographer Asmaa Waguih spent time photographing life in Cairo along the Nile - the iconic Egyptian river which the country depends upon for almost all of its water. Most of Egypt's population live clustered around the Nile valley and delta, and the river is both a vital resource for the country's citizens, and a potent national symbol. In a recent dispute with Ethiopia over the construction of a dam upstream, Egypt's foreign minister Mohamed Kamel Amr underlined the country's reliance on the river's waters: "No Nile - no Egypt," he said.
