A Photo Gallery from Hasankeyf, TurkeyThe Southeastern Anatolian Project (GAP), Turkey's ambitious, 12-phase hydropower initiative, has been in the works since the late 1960s. Its completion will, its planners hope, provide Turkey with the energy and irrigation to join the "developed world." But the Ilisu Dam, a critical component of GAP, will turn the ancient city of Hasankeyf-home to archaeological digs and ethnic minorities-into a lake. See it while you can.
