A 16th century convent in Mexico has re-emerged after water levels in a dam resevoir have dropped.

Low water levels at the Malpaso hydroelectric dam in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas have uncovered part of the convent, which was submerged along with the community of Quechula 40 years ago when the dam was built.
