Sahara Desert Hit by Biggest Snowfall in Living Memory
The Sahara Desert has recorded the biggest snowfall in living memory after a freak winter storm.
It happened in the town of Ain Sefra in Naama Province, Algeria, known as 'The Gateway to the Desert', and the images again captured by Karim Bouchetata are utterly spellbinding.
Incredible pictures show the desert town of Ain Sefra surrounded by snow which is at least a metre deep.
The town saw a sprinkling of snow just before Christmas when a few flakes settled on the red sand dunes of the world's hottest desert for the first time in 37 years.
