Egyptians wary of new Ethiopia dam

Egyptian farmers fear the building of an upstream Nile dam in Ethiopia could lead to water shortages.

    Disputes over water are common around the world, and many experts believe it could be a cause of war in the coming years.

    Egypt and Sudan control more than 90 percent of the Nile's waters, but other countries in the basin want a bigger share.

    Al Jazeera's Rory Challands reports on how tensions are rising between Egypt and Ethiopia.
