Nile dam dispute: Troops mass on Sudan-Eritrea border

Tensions are heating up around the Nile as Sudan sends troops to the border with Eritrea at the same time that cordial meetings are being held to discuss damming the river in Ethiopia.

    A geopolitical crisis is building over who controls the River Nile.

    On Monday, Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia's presidents met in Addis Ababa to resolve a dispute over building a dam on the river in Ethiopia.

    The show of unity has been contradicted as pictures emerge of Sudanese troops near Kassala, near the border with Eritrea.

    Al Jazeera's Charlotte Bellis reports.
