Egypt accuses Ethiopia of violating law over controversial dam

BBC News says Egypt has accused Ethiopia of violating international law after it received a notice saying that Ethiopia’s dam upstream on the Nile is now filling up with water for a second year.

The hydroelectric dam has long been a source of tension in the region.

Egypt, which relies almost entirely on the Nile for its water, sees it as a possible existential threat. Ethiopia says it is vital for its development.

Decade-long negotiations over the dam have failed to reach a final agreement.
