ATTENTION EDITORS-THIS IS THE EIGHTH IN A SERIES OF NINE IMAGES

A general view of the main dam of the Three Gorges project under
construction in Yichang, Hubei province, on August 31, 2002. More than
1.13 million residents in the Three Gorges area along the Yangtze River
are being displaced by the project, which aims to control the country's
mighty Yangtze River and generate electricity. The Three Gorges Dam
project is thought to have cost more than any other single construction
project in China's history, with unofficial estimates of $75 billion or
more. Picture taken August 31, 2002. REUTERS/Guang Niu
