Riyadh Rain

Riyadh Rain with a Parisian feel. Photograph shared by @mohammed919 on Twitter



It rained in the Saudi capital Riyadh yesterday [Nov 29, 2012]. Mohamed AlJuaid captures this image and tweets [ar]:

أجواء الرياض باريسيه …. #أمطار_الرياض #الرياض

@mohammed919: Parisian weather in Riyadh today.

On a more sombre note, @amasq shares the toll [ar]:

#أمطار_الرياض : فقد شخصين ودهس ثلاثة آخرين، وإصابة ثماني حالات، ووقوع 712 حادثة مرورية هذي حرب عالميه ماصارت امطار

@amasq: Two people missing; three people run over by cars; eight people injured and 712 road accidents. This is a world war and not just some rain.
