Sudanese island fishes for tourists

Uploaded by on Dec 26, 2011
Sudan's Suakin Island in the Red Sea has been fought over for centuries. Now residents are hoping that the island's rich history and fine weather will start drawing in holiday makers.

Foreign armies from Alexander the Great to colonial Britain fought for control over this natural sea port that used to link parts of the ancient world.

Today is is in ruins, with a few fishermen families still clinging to their old way of life.

Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall reports from Suakin Island, Sudan.
