Villagers in the Sahara Desert were stunned after snow fell in the desert for the first time in 37 years. The snow brought about a chilly atmosphere for the people.
Those who witnessed the event said it is the second time in living memory that snow has fallen, with the last occasion being in February 1979.
The pictures were taken by amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata in the small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra, Algeria, yesterday afternoon. He captured the amazing moment snow fell on the red sand dunes in the world’s largest hot desert.
