Snow Falls in Sahara Desert

The red sands covering the small desert town of Ain Sefra, Algeria, were coated with snow yesterday afternoon. Meaning that even the Sahara – which has an average 30C temperature – has seen more snow than Britain this year. Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata captured the moment that one of the driest and hottest regions of the world became a winter wonderland for the first time in 37 years.
