Live: Historic town to be flooded in Turkey

The small town of Hasankeyf, in Turkey's Kurdish-majority southeast, is doomed to disappear in the coming months after being inhabited for 12,000 years. An artificial lake, part of the Ilısu hydroelectric dam project, will swallow it up. The huge dam, Turkey's second largest, is being filled further down the Tigris River, despite protests that it will displace thousands of people and risks creating water shortages downstream, namely in Iraq. Residents are being moved from the ancient town to New Hasankeyf nearby, while historic artifacts have also been transported out of the area. Join CGTN's Michal Bardavid to take a look.
