Sudanese militia kill three people in Merowe dam area
Three people were killed and more than fifty wounded in attack carried out by pro governmental militia in Merowe dam area in northern Sudan... The conflict between the dam authority and the affected people is about the resettlement places. Whereas the affected people demand to be resettled around the dam reservoir, the dam authority insists on resettling the people in Bayouda desert, a location rejected by the people... The Merowe Dam (under construction) is financed by China Exim Bank and different Arab Funds, and executed by Chinese and European companies, including Lahmeyer International, Alstom, and ABB.
