Rare snow­fall in Bagh­dad

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Bagh­dad

– Res­i­dents of Bagh­dad rushed to have snow­ball fights or take pho­to­graphs yes­ter­day as the Iraqi capital woke car­peted in white by only its sec­ond snow­fall in a cen­tury.

The last recorded snow­fall in the city was in 2008 and prior to that, it had been a cen­tury since Bagh­dad saw any flakes.

Iraqis young and old said it was the first time they had ever seen snow fall­ing in Bagh­dad. – AFP
