Ethiopia Renaissance Dam second filling triggers concerns downstream

Ethiopia has started the second phase of filling the reservoir of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) on the upper Blue Nile, according to the authorities in neighbouring Egypt and Sudan, raising tensions before a UN Security Council meeting on the divisive project.
Ethiopia says it informed Sudan and Egypt that it has begun the second phase of filling the dam.
But Cairo and Khartoum say filing it without an agreement will affect the region's stability and security.

Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan reports from Sudan’s Blue Nile state near the border with Ethiopia.
