Officials from Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan early Wednesday announced progress in talks on what will be Africa's largest hydroelectric dam. The foreign ministers of Egypt and Ethiopia and Sudan's water resources minister said they will set up a scientific study group to consult on the filling of Ethiopia's $5 billion Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam on the Nile River.
