Snow falls in Sahara desert for third time in 40 years

Snowfall has covered the desert dunes of Algerian Sahara.

Snow has fallen in the Sahara, covering desert dunes in a layer up to 40cm deep.

Snow started falling on the Algerian town of Ain Sefra in the early hours of Sunday morning, giving children an opportunity to race each other down the slopes. It began to melt later in the day.
