Mubarak, African leaders review Nile River issues

CAIRO — Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak on Sunday discussed with his counterpart from the Congo and the prime Minster of Kenya the lingering crisis over sharing the waters of the Nile river.
Egypt said it is carefully weighing its response to a new agreement signed by five upriver countries which could affect its current majority share of the river's waters.
Egypt's Middle East News Agency said Mubarak, Kenya's Raila Odinga and Congolese President Joseph Kabila reviewed in two separate meetings cooperation between Egypt and other Nile basin countries "in irrigation and agriculture."
