Floods in Saudi Arabia kill 15
This is not a picture that we immediately would associate with Saudi Arabia. The photo was taken in Jeddah, however. It's an annual feature of Saudi Arabia, particularly the Hejaz, these floods in the autumn as a consequence of heavy rains. This time it is also in Riyadh and other parts of the kingdom. According to the newspaper Arab News 15 people were killed.
