A look at ancient Sudanese pyramids

Though a UNESCO World Heritage Site, these pyramids in northern Sudan have been largely overshadowed by the more famous pyramids in neighboring Egypt. Located some 200 kilometers away from Khartoum, the Nubian Pyramids were built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite Kingdom, who ruled 3,000 years ago. They are built of granite and sandstone. There are twice as many Nubian pyramids still standing today as there are Egyptian ones. CGTN Reporter Naba Mohiedeen tells us more after her visit to the Nubian Desert.
