Local tourists from Batman visiting Hasankeyf;
Sitting on the banks of the Tigris river the ancient town of Hasankeyf lives in a kind of limbo, thousands of years of history about to disappear beneath the flood waters of the ILISU damn project, for the people of Hasankeyf unable to build or sell homes, find work or even get a straight answer to when the past will be washed away, this threat has hung over the town for decades but now the Turkish government is trying to push ahead with the dam despite international condemnation.
